I put that poem up, underlining that it was the one most like your argument but that even in this one (which isn't among my favorites) there is a message that is different then what you reduce it to. It is in a form that is shared by many of the myths of North American peoples. It isn't the similarities to Eden that are interesting in these myths but the differences. Your complaints are strange to me and, to be honest, uninteresting. Even stranger is that now, as we enter the age of consequences for all we have wrecked and/or failed to live in balance with, you would find myths that engage that as old hat. Old hat is when you get something down and no longer need the lesson. When it is wisdom that is utterly ignored over and over again, the interesting thing is the tin ear.
