Sunup, on cue, at dawn.
Counter-clockwise spun the earth.
As usual, time pressed on.
Then unexpected, aye unplanned,
The timing quite succinct,
When every creature small and great
On this vast planet blinked.
The result was a disturbance
A bizarre anomaly,
Altered the course of creature-kind
And earth’s trajectory.
The simultaneous eye closure
By every living thing,
Had widespread consequences
From Pittsburgh to Peking.
Scientists were flummoxed, but still they theorized,
Purported forth as gospel truth, “Earth met-a-morph-o-sized.”
It started, NOT like bygone days,
Sunup – an hour past dawn!
The earth rotated clock-wise—
Reversed the Amazon!
And drizzle in the rainforest—
Extinct, as was the heat.
The moisture now that issued forth
Came down as snow and sleet.
Dwellers in this forest headed in a new direction
They arrived at the Antarctic, ‘twas their “natural selection.”
The chicken, brunt of riddles,
To the town of Pittsburgh showed,
She’d grown a compass on her beak
That helped her cross the road.
Evolved upon the bovine was
A switch upon her udder,
Clicked left, she pumped out chocolate milk,
Switched right, she churned out butter.
A pig inside the barnyard
Perceived a strange sensation,
Then just above his bacon
Transpired a new mutation.
Like superman— up, up away!
Pig flew into the sky.
He’d generated feathered wings.
The porcine beast could fly.
When farmer saw the winged-pig fly, perplexed conjecture flowed,
And… “Survival of the fittest?” – when the chicken crossed the road.
Then ‘round the world, the Peking Man,
The first to walk upright.
He backwards— started to devolve,
A puzzling fossil plight!
Nearby a restaurant in Peking,
A chicken, they extolled.
Instead of laying chicken eggs,
She laid chicken eggrolls.
Would this grant Darwin a >BIG BANG< ? Or, would he be amused
To learn what happened when we blinked, or would he be confused?
