Naming of Animals

A weary God, too worn to cope with more
created Adam from the earthly dust
(a man made in his image) to entrust 
him as the garden’s chief conservator.
Poor youthful Adam, flummoxed to the core,
his timorous mind perplexed, his state nonplussed,
still bowed to God’s command as mortals must
despite not knowing what had gone before.
So Adam studied Yahweh’s nascent game
and itemized an index to compile
a list of animals, for each a name,
which then became a massive working file
so when he met a dog he could proclaim
with forceful voice, “I dub thee Kyle.”
