Knowledge reveals herself

Epistemophiles

by Lordinajamjar


Primeval garden settlement
-- was Adamant.
Bred to obey,
they had no say.

Some enlightened settlers rebelled.
All were expelled. 
Freed to conceive
new home -- called Eve.

Epistemophiles -- did thrive there:
taught everywhere
fruits of knowledge,
rites of passage.
