The New Moral: Gospel of the Fall – A Poem

Andrew Darlington has had numerous written work published in all manner of strange and obscure places, magazines, websites, anthologies and books. He also worked as a Stand-Up Poet on the Alternative Cabaret Circuit and has been interviewed by many people from the worlds of Literature, Science-Fiction Fantasy, Art and Rock-Music for a variety of publications.

A selection of my favorite interviews collected into The Headpress Book, I Was Elvis Presley’s Bastard Love-Child. My latest poetry collection is Tweak Vision by Alien Buddha Press, while my new fiction collection A Saucerful Of Secrets is now available from Parallel Universe Publications.

The New Moral: Gospel of the Fall

She plucks the rosy red apple from the forbidden tree
holds it out for me, I say I prefer Golden Delicious
why not eat it yourself? she says I only eat apples
when the skin’s shaved away, it’s cut into
neat segments with pips and core removed,
and lightly sprinkled with demerara,
I know it’s organic and locally-sourced
but there may be bugs or maggoty-worms,
reasonable hygiene precautions make sense…
and the Satan-Snake says sod this
I’m giving the apple to the orangutans…
things have never been quite the same since
