MAGPIE...Prompt #107

THANK YOU, TESS, at Magpie Tales.


HISTORY OF THE WORLD

Funny how long
you let the snake
define my soul,
chisel me from marble,
carve my feet from clay.

Rearranged my DNA
into second place
as Adam "AND" Eve.

Called yourself
the master of the universe
as I gratefully
puttered in the pantry,
scrubbing a place
fit for a virgin,
averted my gaze
like a little lady should.

Now I ask a simple thing.
Scramble up here
from your retro roost,
look me in the eye,
and see
that I've become
much more
than a match
dot com.
