Alpha Plus X (after Genesis)

You started out so organized
from darkness you created light
You spoke a word you had a plan
dividing waters, forming land
You hung the moon upon the evening
planted trees of every kind
spun the days & months & seasons
next animals and then mankind
 You blessed the whales, the woolly beasts
The birds, the cattle, all creeping things
By hand you formed a human male
then tenderly, a human female.
You gave dominion over all of this
for us to do with as we wished
Told us to name and care for it all
but we haven't been good stewards at all
How did the world get away from us?
Once called "good" when you quickened
our dust, we've an odd hunger
and we don't know why we eat
so many fruits, yet none satisfy.
