Eve was a young girl of thirteen

The daughter of the sun king

She was gravely scared of Apollo

So ran and hid in a forest hollow

It was there that Artemis found her

And offered to take her as a daughter

She said, "Yes!" to who was her best friend

And therefor unknowingly beginning the end

She swore to be an eternal maiden

And forever forsake the company of men

She held through for fifty long years

Having aged no more than some dead steers

Then she met the man named Adam

And he left of her heart not a crumb

Eve then decided to kiss him

Artemis screamed, "You've failed your mission!"

"I'll have to decide a punishment.

One made with proper judgement.

I know! I'll turn you into foxes.

Then hang you both from some crosses."

Artemis let Adam and Eve run

To anywhere they wished under the sun

She promised to give them three days

To find a location that was safe

Then she called the huntresses

All the daughters of Artemis

To hunt down the blasphemous traitor

The goddess made Eve's sisters hate her

Soon they found Adam and Eve

Making love, their pet peeve

They shot the foxes full of arrows

Sinking into their bone marrows

So fell the huntress, Artemis's lieutenant
