Cain

georg-grosz-cain

 

Hated for not bringing the meat, so to speak

His offerings weren’t sanctioned by blood

A farmer of violence and war in the world

A precursor to the ‘flood’.

 

He has everything hidden deep within

But his actions spoke out loud

His sin was his envious ego

He was far too jealous, and proud.

 

He is marked for all time, they say

To remind those of us, who can see

The coiled still lies latent in men

Regardless how far from the tree.

 

But before we cast this Cain into Hell

There is something more in this story, to rock

For this is the man, it would seem

That sired a boy named, Enoch!
