Evolution - Poem by Carsten Thomsen

The firefly -
with the hermit crab
a close second
appears to me
as the
pinnacle of evolution
with man kind
stuck somewhere
and leech
And I wonder
when and how
it all happened
When these P.hd.’s
of science
and walking armors
sitting in the darkness
on a twig
above/ in
a river
of primal ooze
realized life
being so short
to find
reason in
must watch
and bring
into the darkness

    My own home town's motto is 'Out of darkeness cometh light', and this poem qualifies it. I liked the image of man being somewhere between hyena and leech - a poem that pulls no punches and what an ending. (Report) Reply
