surely you can't presume
a lad to become totally and devoutly
decadent and depraved
until said child
has been sent to a good school
such words penned
maybe not exactly like above
by H.H. (Saki) Munro
so I've been led to believe
and really
why would they lie
then again
why wouldn't they

homo sapiensRUs
borne from one of two
long ago events
God in Heaven
bored out of His Heavenly skull
(God has a skull?)
took his magic and created the universe
still bored
(one of those days)
He made appear plants and water and . . .
things on one of the worlds
and called it Earth
still, something wasn't right
ah
the image of Me
was next to come
little egocentric I would presume
but who am I to presume
made a man
which was good
uh, but the man seemed somewhat lost as to what to do
so He gave man
(wo)man
ah, that's more like it
man figured out what to do PDQ
and they've been fighting ever since
God has a very weird sense of humor

anyway
that's one version

another version
(which actually kinda, maybe, makes more sense)
is that we
homo sapiens
climbed out of the ocean
learned how to breathe the air
(air may have been different back then)
grew feet and this and that and
voilą!
man
man and woman
well, not exactly
see, we were more on the
uh
lower scale of the food chain
had to learn
the law of the jungle as it were
tough going
still . . .
we preserved
finally made it up the chain
to the great apes
oh boy
now things were looking up
don't'cha know
don't laugh
didn't-ja see "Planet of the Apes?"
jeez
anyhow, and I'm not smart enough to explain
how it worked
but hell
way I heard it
apesRUs
except now we're human
whatever that means
have we stopped evolving
maybe
could be we're going backward

tell the truth
explaining the Creation Crusade
and the Evolution Epigone
have flat out worn me down
besides, I got carried away
it's better usually
to use
Ockham's Razor
way of
'splaining things

have we stopped evolving?

Ahhh the mystery of our origin! You treat this theme with a mischievous smile upon your pen. Human dignity somehow sadly fails to surface, despite the hard lessons learned.

I appreciate your work and how it makes us ponder and ponder and ponder ...

Ah, Margherita, I appreciate that you follow me and my words very much. No. The so-called civilized world has much to ponder as well, and when we are through with all of our pondering we lapse back into the tried and untrue ways of before. When. Are. We. Going. To. Stop. Ignoring. Our. Past. Mistakes?

Much to digest in this season, where some will have plenty and some will barely eat.

Enjoyed the ponderings here on the state of the human condition

But no one seems to really know and nobody seems to know which Planets? Some think we evolved from the sea not as full grown sea maids and men but maybe tadpoles which over the years did also keep evolving Some seem to think the Aliens were seen and written about in a book called the Bible and some seem to think from Davey's locker. Who really knows? Hidden caves still found beneath the seas and there are many down there in the deep deep deep. Where darkness rules. Many more caves in the hills and mountains where maybe waters spilled through and carved them out.

Maybe these caves were once above the earth and people found a way to live down under water when the mountains sunk and later learned to live above ground when they emerged.The world is a mysterious place and fun to ponder but who or what will ever really know the truth? You can send rockets to the skies and soon so many will be flying around up there maybe one will land on another place. Will it also have waters deep or caves and mountains standing high? So many mysteries yet to discover and I wonder if we will ever know the whole of it. I see in my mind  so many countries shooting rockets to the heights and so many to the low, but I never see in my  mind a finish end. Just an never ending story. So many rockets from here and there. Do we have an agreement as to when and where we will shoot them? will they collide and splatter leaving miles of burned and ruined pieces of technology over  Earth. Oh my dear Pat.Me thinks I should go to bed to dream perhaps and ~~~~~~~ good night sir you have made my senses scream out.jo

Whoa~~~~~Jo, you really got into the swing of things with your wonderful comment. Yep, you got it right about the many mindsets of the"creation." The birth and life of Christ has been the one taking center stage, mainly because of the written word, no matter how contradictory it is. I very glad my poem caused you to unleash your thoughts here, and I thank you very much.
