Devolution Of Charles Darwin's Evolution Theory- Satirical Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Devolution Of Charles Darwin's Evolution Theory- Satirical

Rating: 5.0

Charles Darwin, whether thought direct or indirect means,
that humans, apes, and monkeys descend from common genes,
a concept that's both eerie and satirical in its themes,
as we return to our primal roots, donning monkey suits,
will our intellect dilute?

The skyscrapers that once made the city grand,
will be replaced by vines that spread across the land.
Our technology, planes, and cars,
replaced by monkey-like anatomy in bizarre memoirs.

All scientific progressions will be thrown to the wind,
as we forage for bananas and swing from tree to tree with a grin.
our sophisticated language will be reduced to gibberish,
and all our efforts to progress will be seen trivial and will perish.

But wait, am I speaking something too soon,
for in this world, we may find new opportunities to groom,
perhaps we'll learn to thrive in this new clime,
as a new breed with evolutionary bungle, we'll shine.

And so, my dear readers, this story concludes,
of humans becoming monkeys, as absurd as it may sound,
but let's not forget the wonders of evolution,
the way we are behaving today will lead us to the jungle.

It has already paved the jungle path.What we call progression is really regression from psychological point of view.Now we are inferior to all other animals.very insightful poem written satirically.Enjoyed it from start to finish.

Thank u so much Dr. Dash. you got the real essence of my poem. We are on the reverse gear instead of going forward we are moving backward, all our inventions, innovations are used to scare humanity in general.

Apes, monkeys and humans evolved from a common ancestor. Evolution does not stop at humans, nor does it anywhere. So, a different species more intelligent and dominant than humans can evolve from any of the existing species….

Thank u so much for your comment, Unni Ji, are we not moving backward if what Darwin said is true? We have more animal instincts than animal itself. Might and powerful rules.
