Seed of Adam
ADAM addresses the followers of wealth and wisdom: ADAM. Dullards of darkness, light's lazybones Poor primitives of our natural bareness, where's your awareness? will moans and groans for gold of brawn or brain regain the way to the entry of Paradise? up! shut your eyes, will you? or make a play for your leisure, and a treasure of your idleness? You, have you nothing better to do in our world but play hide and seek with oblivion? Say, say something, say who are you? I will tell you, tell you what you knew, I am Adam. … EVE. Are they fighting again? ADAM. What else? They have not the pain that in us stops us fighting. EVE. Have they found anything? ADAM. Nothing, my Eve. They cannot find the centre, the core of the fruit where the root of return is. I dropped it; it is gone.
