The code is hidden they say, in my sight
all I need do is read and glean the word
scholars world wide compute and work
but maybe the Bible was just written in reverse

I found my own code by reading the word
Revelation is the start and Gneiss the end
in the middle David and Bathsheba were cursed
but they together made the wises man on earth

Solomon born from their treacherous lust
came here to enlighten us that love is pure
no hidden meaning in his carnal love songs
words of men and women brings heat, enthralls

But then again maybe it was written for choice
for each man to choose is own morale code
not one of counted words or numbered verse
So I choose to read my code in reverse

The end is the start and the start is the end
Man kind  is renewed by each new birth
we women are all Eves and you men all Adams
and I will end before the snake enters the garden

Something I'm known to say often is this: "The written word is left to the interpretation of both the sender and the receiver." Surely, this holds true of the Bible, as it most assuredly does with poetry. As an aside? I can interpret something I read in the Bible today differently from the last time I might have read it.

Excellent last line.

Very interesting - and strange - just this morning my husband and I were talking about the 'code' - we just found out that there is a second book (been out a long time but we didn't know) that claims the twin tower tragedy was foretold in the code. Jackie <> <
