    Who really gave who the apple?
    Eve gave Adam so they say.
    But have you really thought about it?
    Because it maybe the other way around..

    Adam gave Eve the apple.
    In which she ate….
    And gave us our fate
    Of thieves and liars
    Drug dealers and wanna be’s
    Full of baby makers denying their own blood
    Killing Queens, raping pride but proclaim King
    King of what? When they don’t have a crown
    Let alone a throne!
    Don’t you need a Queen to be a King?
    So I say who gave who that dayum apple?

    Slick in wolf clothing
    Searching and yearning
    Betrayal from the beginning
    Sick mental games twisting truth
    Sliding around on his belly…like a serpent
    Lurking as they Run game
    Acting untamed… Touches forbidden fruit
    With tricks of the old trade..running that bull…
    Thinking they all that…when in fact they aint ish
    Who gave who that dayum apple?
    See I know a few brothers
    Got five kids by five different woman
    Talking about making a change..
    …only thing they change is their woman and underwear
    hell… You got brothers married for 13 years 3 kids…
    with a woman on the side with a baby to arrive
    Flowing in his game trying to stay sane.
    So who gave who that apple?

    See I come to realize all thas written my not be true
    Just placed out of the blue…to give power when its really none..
    The woman is the strength for she gives hope when its none.
    So who gave who that dayum apple?

    Who really gave who the apple?
    Eve gave Adam so they say.
    But have you really thought about it?
    Because it maybe the other way around..

    :argue: My sista, my sista your props are due...
    cause we really don't know who gave the apple to who...
    all we surely know is the serpant will deceive...
    and is ever clever getting us to believe...
    so you may have a point for us to ponder...
    and what's actually true we'll forever wonder...

    d*mn, this GrannySmith taste good as a motha*@#f :D

    MzBlkAngel....

    Speak....Sista, speak. :D

    A little something to make us think. And for those who don't want to because of their beliefs, I feel ya.

    :thanks: for making us think critically about how woman and man perceive one another and how they relate to each other.

    I like the thought process in this piece as well as the creativity. Although I have my beliefs and others may not believe as I do. I respect everyone for their own individuality. Great piece!

    Assuming that what was written is true, and Eve tempted Adam with the apple, did Adam have to eat it? Would Adam had eventually taken a bite if Eve did not tempt him? This piece makes one ponder...Good write.
