A bit of Work Experience...
I'll see what I can find..."

"Well, I don't mind saying, Man to God,
that it's not what I'd in mind."

Well, next week, God comes bouncing back:
"Now, sithee lad," says he,
"I'd quite a lot of useful bits,
left o'er from making thee…
so I'd like to introduce you to
my Prototype Mark Two...

Could you happen spare a few?
Oh, one thing more - I've found a spot
to put me apple tree.

"That's just like you," said God,
"to go and blame it on a snake.
You can go and raise cain, for all I care!"
"Oh, well", says Eve, "Bye-bye,
But I'll tell you this," she added with a wink,
"It's better than apple pie!"
