Eva talks to Adam

For millennia, now,
you have loved things more than humans

You own vehicles, houses, fields and forests
weapons and tools
that belong to you
and which you use
to maintain your power.

Your honor is placed above mine
You love yourself more than me

You have torn up
mother earth
to tear out her treasures
bodies enslaved
even my own
which you are using
with your tools and weapons

For millennia
you decided if life or death

In the name of God
you subjugated the earth

And I have permitted this

Today, I say thank you
– but just once

Enough property and power
Have been created
And now we share!

No, I am not so stupid
as not to take away your weapons
