the snake lied – v3

Of something I am certain,
the snake lied at the beginning
hissing in the garden;
His words of death were real
knowledge is not power.

In our hands, our minds,
Knowledge is a curse
the snake oil the snake sold us;
There in the garden, death,
at the beginning of our history.

God made a perfect plan,
one requiring no effort
no changes, no correction;
but we blew it to pieces
there in the garden.

Listening to talking snakes
was such a bad idea…
