Beautiful Bacteria Poem by Kevin Patrick

Beautiful Bacteria

Rating: 4.3

Our Bodies are planets of flesh
Teaming with microorganisms
Trillions upon trillions cohabiting
The continents of our colon and intestines

Our physical and mental health
Is owed to multifarious microbes
They are policemen for pathogens
And technicians for our immune system

There is more life swarming withing us
Then the entire earth combined
It is an evolutionary synergy
And true symbiotic fidelity

It is an incredible feeling
To know we are a living vessel
A host to a micro universe
Living blissfully within ourselves

We are biological Eden
To these Beautiful bacteria

You have to go back to the birth of the sun which grew by the collapse of interstellar gas and dust, mostly hydrogen. As this gas contracted it spun faster which grouped together around the forming sun.

Once this process had begun after around 100 million years all the dust and rock were almost in place and four rock planets were formed and were thrown into space.

These cells were prokaryote celled organisms forming bacteria that have no distinct nucleus. It was only when eukaryotic cells developed. From eukaryotic cells all life evolved from plant to fish to animals to humans. Phew!

The Earths origin is dated to about 4.5 billion years ago, primordial atmosphere probably escaped via volcanos and largely water vapour, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen. Bacteria like microbes and simple single celled plants began to change the atmosphere.
