Sonnet 25: Original Seduction

Hell’s Incubus, father of Sin and Death,
Impregns with temptsome seed Eve’s dream gestalt—
Fiend cants supernal fruit in shibboleth:
Godlike by branched knowledge vouchsafes no fault.
Eve of narcissistic bent discovered
On distant ground by Evil serpentine—
Nigh seduced by her female charms, suffered
His envy ere seduced her to incline.
Praised beauty pedestals Eve to goddess
Immaculate—Rib’s pride cloyed on urged sin—
Wife-cμm-seductress woos Adam to bliss,
Choose flesh of his flesh, o’er God, reaps chagrin.
Paradise lost by tandem seduction,
Paradise regained by paid redemption.
