Adam And Me

 

a drunken bum

or so say some

who cast me

with a cursory glance

but I'm a man of soul

as you well know

if you have given me half a chance

we are sinners all

since Adam's fall

we struggle

to grip our fate

in the outstretched hand

of a humbled man

you see

our most noble trait

thus I greet each brother

any one like an other

be he furry

or fowl

or man

this earth is my home

whether I stay put

or roam

I treat her

the best

that I can
