The Value of Little ‘Not’

The value of little ‘not’
Always underrated but
Important when unheeded
By many to great hurt

Thou shall not eat thereof
Was the command given
The reward for eating was
To fall by death’s sting

But Satan brought another
‘Not’ for he said
‘Thou shall surely ‘not’
Die the death you dread

Eve forgot the first not
For lure of the second
She traded nots and gained
Nought-for she and husband
Died in same thousand year day

One misplaced not brought
Death and human suffering
To all sages in all ages
What a single ‘not’ brought forth!

Christ has made a way back
He has bought the life Eve sought
So He must be our truth North
To navigate quick sands of Satan’s nots

We’d be nuts to reject Him for Satan’s nots
That only lead to regions fraught
With the weeping of the distraught
