The Tree Of Knowledge
What knowledge to be had
From the fruit of knowledge tree?
Just what kind of knowledge?
Well, if we eat it, we learn
About vitamins
Vitamins are what heal the body.
What knowledge to be had
From the fruit of knowledge tree?
Just what kind of knowledge?
If we cut in two, we learn about
Division!
If we put it under a telescope, we learn about
Pigmentation
What knowledge to be had
From the blossoms of the knowledge
Tree?
Just what kind of knowledge?
It is excellent for pollination;
Honey heals
The human body.
Bees heal the soul
So the perfect pink blossoms
With the scent of paradise.
What knowledge
To be had from the knowledge tree?
Just what kind of knowledge?
Photosynthesis!
Humility!
Humanity!
Humidity!
And carbon dating!

What knowledge
To be had from the fruit
Of knowledge tree?
That Adam made the right decision
To taste it.
Why blame poor Eve?
Dialectic reasoning!
