Counting Back from Ten to One

There was just one rule
And so it is we wonder about that
Was it really so unbearable so cruel
that we took the fruit like flying foxes?

The relationship decimated
From paradise we were evicted
To walk the planet feeling hated
No, this is not why we were created!

In our wanderings far from the garden
And after much grief and even despair
We learned to count from one to ten
Commandments we observed with fear

And yet now from a single act
We now count back from ten to one
The command to love we gladly enact
That one day we’ll receive the crown
of life
