Eve's Serpent

Eve's Serpent

A Poem by Kpoh




I recount the manner of the Serpent
Who crept on his belly and was from the beginning numbered
Who with the astonishment of an apple beguiled Eve our Mother
Who absconded the Garden of Eden
Who from Moses rod mesmerized and bewildered Pharaoh
Who became a scourge of venomous vipers in Numbers
Who became unpleasant to the heels of those who in the wilderness tempted God
Who was made unto an image of redemption for they in Numbers scourged
Who is in Job counted for his crooked ways
Who crept on his belly from the Old Testament and entered the New Testament undaunted
Who was to a generation of doubtful Pharisees compared in Matthew
Who in ensample suffered no consideration by evil men as substitute for fish
Who fastened himself unto Paul’s hand in Acts, and was by him ignored and in seminal fashion shaken into fire
Who was bound up for a thousand years in The Revelation
I seal the manner of the Serpent
Who crept on his belly and was at the end numbered
7/30/8 – 8/8/8
