J. P. Celia: The Evolution Of Life On Earth

A Presentation

(Ahem)

Lots of water
à la Noah.
Lightning – poof! – then
Protozoa.

Time elapses
For an instant.
Look! A fish is
Now existent.

Lungs and kneecaps,
Stegosaurus.
Add a comet,
Get a tortoise.

Something, something,
Then impalas.
Birds and stuff and
Cute koalas.

Enter monkeys,
Thumbed and clever.
Next a link who
Strays forever.

Lastly humans,
The most awesome
In the – say us –
Macrocosm.

What comes after?
None are certain.
(Clapping, bowing,
Music, curtain)
