TITLE: The De-evolution of Planet eX-whY-Zee

Ten trillion billion years ago
On planet eX-whY-Zee
Dwelt 50 million comrades --
An advanced humanity.

The citizens were sacrosanct,
Professing to be wise.
And every action that was done
Was right in their own eyes.

Events began to happen
That man did not foresee.
The cause? …‘twas global warming
Or a planetary freeze?

Maybe the ozone buildup
Caused an air pollution trap.
Or aliens used their ray guns
To melt the polar cap.

Eight trillion billion years ago
Man’s shoulders start to stoop.
A tail soon develops
And his arms begin to droop.

Six trillion billion years ago
Cro-Magnon’s cave is home
Where pterodactyl soar
And the brontosaurus roam.

Four trillion billion years ago
Monkeys become bees.
Man becomes a monkey and
The bees become small fleas.

Two trillion billion years ago
A single life-cell group
Mutated then transitioned into
Thick primordial soup

One trillion billion years ago
There remained some dull green fuzz.
A “little bang” transpired then
From something …nothing was.

Enjoyed this poem. Not being a proponent of evolution, I always snicker when I hear that jazz about our earth being billions of years old. And they call creation science a myth! What a jolt for the scientists when they learn the truth! Well done.

Very clever and witty indeed.
I’m not sure the post-script wouldn’t have worked better as a ‘straight’ commentary on the idiocy of the evolutionary position.

Great! I think a teen would love the "deepness" of this poem. I can hear them, "Oh, dude, that's wicked." It would make them think at least. I enjoyed it!
Sharlyn Guthrie06/16/07
What a fun, eye-catching title. The poem is well written and delightful, as well.

Very clever! Nice job on the poetry too - it flows. Good job! :)

Where do you come up with all of these creative ideas?! :-) This was a fun read. By the way, I really think that evolutionists have to have more faith than we do to believe some of those theories. I'm so glad that I can look in God's Word to find out where I came from!
Blessings, Elizabeth

Oh, this is such a treat! It's smart, witty, entertaining, and so skillfully written. Great topic, great job! (And thank you for stopping by to read "Devil's Stew" :-) What a nice surprise to find your smiling comment this morning!) May the Lord bless your pen (keyboard ;-)as you write for Him!

How did I miss this the first time around? It's brilliant. The scientist in me was cheering all the way! Your poetry skills are "evolved" beyond the norm. God knew what He was doing when He placed the poetry talent in you...
Clyde Blakely 07/15/07
Enjoyed the humor. Well written. I remember well the ninth grade, best three years of my life.
Julie Arduini09/13/08
I found this through Friday Fiction, I think every media anchor should read it!

That makes as much sense to me as the "other" theory. I never have been a believer in evolution. Even when I was in high school (over 40 years ago) I wore a T-shirt to science class that said "I am NOT a monkey's uncle".

I really enjoyed your delightful spoof on science theory... especially the "little bang" theory.
