In the primordial time a pattern formed,
Where everything was eating everything.
Oh so many bizarre and varied phylum ruled then.
So many now lost to our tree of life.
To a time now gone where we lived
by rock and stick, fighting tooth and claw,
the Goddess was revered
and magic ruled the realm.
Now religion battles religion
battles science for primacy.
We are now much what we were
but with deadlier rock and stick.
In my own mind belief battles fact,
wonder jostles pain and negates ennui.
I look to the stars and think can what I see be all?
[Guess] I’ll know when it’s over; or not.
