Perhaps

Genesis 3:1: "Now the serpent was cunning, more than all the beasts of the field that the Lord God had made, and it said to the woman, ‘Did God perhaps say, ‘You shall not eat of any of the trees of the garden?’."

Did God perhaps say
that you mustn't eat
from any tree?

Or am I naïve?
Perhaps it could be
that I was deceived.
Perhaps I don't know
what to believe.
Perhaps you're not Eve.
Perhaps I misheard.
The pronouncement
was muffled,
my ear is inside.
I couldn't quite hear.
Perhaps it's absurd.
It's been a long day
yet we've barely gotten
from A to B.
The rules are unclear.
I'm new around here.
Perhaps this is nothing
to do with me.

Did God perhaps say
that you mustn't eat
from any tree?

I haven't a clue.
You tell me.
