Reptile Invasion - Mapuia Thawmte

Mapuia Thawmte spins a yarn on the biblical portrayal of the fall of mankind, and its consequences.


A token of pure innocence

Suddenly turned to obscenity

When that crafty crawler crept in

And ascended to the throne


Perfect creation, epitome of beauty

From head to toe you need no clad

A bonnie bosom, a toothsome torso

All sacrosanct in the garden


A hallowed halo above thy brow

Turned to a cursed crown of thorns

When divine conjugal covenant collapsed

You crawled away with the serpent king


A seducing song of a sly old snake

Stripped you out of your tabernacle

A serpentine eyes began to see

The beauty of a blooming narcissus


A doomy dimension of debauchery

Fig leaves woven, disguised beauty

Forbidden fruit was tasted once

From head to toe, you need a clad


Freedom sold for freedom's sake

Too much to hide you bought a mask

Life's a game of hide and seek

You're just a corpse, the living dead


Dark clouds rolled in, blurred eyes opened

Venom ran deep the tainted soul

Egos extolled the pompous king

"All is well, all is well"


Perfect creation with a smutty soul

Back to the garden in a stripping gait

A luring leg, a fetching flesh

All profanity, symbol of disgrace


A token of pure innocence

Suddenly turned to obscenity

When that crafty crawler crept in

And ascended to the throne
