Why did you reproach him?
And turn him away?
Then curse him?
It is not honourable for Adam to kneel
Adam, you who have ruined my life
Listen: The Lord will one day revoke
How did He make you the caretaker?
The master and the slave?
The father and the son?
you are nothing but
A pair of flawed boots.
