The Garden Of Gregorio Gonzales

Did you ever stop to think
that maybe God himself
gave Eve of the forbidden fruit,

maybe God himself was the serpent.
They say he works in mysterious ways
don’t they?

He wrote the Ten Commandments
as a comedy routine
and sat incognito in the audience.

He sends the worldwide epidemics
to make a little breathing room.
His lungs are huge you know.

He did not make man
in his own image after all-----
he made man in the image of his gardener!
