The Fall

It was not our nakedness we didn’t know
but the allure of shoes and clothes.
Alas they came along with dearth of good–
strings of pearls and lowly hoods.
Nor was it Lucifer that gave us pause
but other beings’ fur and claws.
We’d need those later on (we quickly thought)
if our repentance came to naught.
