He thought could life be any bleaker
As he made plans how he’d upbraid
His wife who was a fortune seeker
Whose plans included getting laid
By Satan. Yes, the very devil
Who’d promised madam her best revel.
The gentle man sought some constraint
And so to God he made complaint.
God listened as he curried favor;
Then said you must display desire
If you, the lady’d, reacquire.
But said it laughing up His sleeve,
Remembering Adam and Eve.
