The Sin of Eve

Welcome to trial by ordeal with a modern twist
Where any trivial detail once missed
Ensures that no one will ever believe
Her. For she is on trial for the sin of Eve.

Her’s is the devilled apple meant to deceive
man into sin all her fault now as he sees
himself exacting revenge unbidden
questing to un spelling her witchcraft hidden.

This is not justice more a trial by fire
The verdict always: she’s an everlasting liar
Her penalty adds more to Eve's penance
While the perpetrator retains his innocence.

So? Did the medieval witch trials ever go away?
No. Women still suffer for the sin of Eve everyday.
