Array ( [sid] => 181666 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Plausible Fables [time] => 2015-08-27 01:11:56 [hometext] => It ain’t necessarily quite like that… [bodytext] => I doubt that science and history;
Could find a better mystery;
Than who we are and whence we came;
We’re orphans here without a name!

But sampling soil and carbon dating;
Haven’t done much indicating!
(Dinosaurs we know about;
But human lineage stays in doubt)!

Some claim apes originated;
All these genes we’ve integrated;
But were they the missing link;
Would not their ape-form be extinct?

Faith requires some odd deceptions;
Watered wine; devine conception…
Religion makes believable;
the downright inconceivable!

Heaven/Hell (their best creation!)
Ying and Yang to man’s temptations
Was Bethlehem a mystery?
Or mind-boggling technology?

Suppose the star on midnight clear;
Was from a ship that landed here?
To give their dying progeny;
A few more years of history?

Might you fall also on our knees;
Convinced that these were gods indeed?
Who mapped the stars and made it pour;
For forty days and furthermore..

An aircraft carrier might have space;
For two of every specie’s race;
But Noah’s Arc? Suffice to say;
They came onboard as DNA!

To venerate theology;
We discount anthropology;
(Perhaps why we so seldom see;
An ape atop a Christmas tree).

Still, I doubt that we, with luck;
Emerged from some primordial muck!
Although you’re where you are today;
Cause many many paved your way!

You need not agree with me; And that's your privilege certainly!
but asking “why” expands the mind; and answers follow close behind!
(One precaution good to follow? Taste life first before you swallow).

Why, for instance don’t we think;
That man will ever be extinct?
We may be the highest order;
But that chain is getting shorter!

We’ll freeze, or fry, or boil in tar;
Or drown, or breathe in vats of SAR;
Or blow the planet off its axis;
(Anything except pay taxes)!

With any luck they’ll not resolve;
The mysteries they seek to solve!
And we will trust what wise men say;
Unless a star should come your way.

Just don’t look up or slow your pace;
When they see how we’ve changed the place;
With any luck we’ll fall from grace.

How very clever and entertaining this poem is. Such psyche diving would have kept me up too. In fact it often does. I'm standing and applauding.

As always spectacular.
A constant lovely flow with unique wording throughout. Very clever as well.

I'm your number one fan.

Equally as entertaining as Cloak and Dagger. You're on a roll!!!

I say all the races came from some other dying planet and migrated to different continents. The technology eventually was lost and we started (in a way) all over again.

UFOs, aliens, life out there, hollow moons, oh yeah. I'm into it.

Bravo Jaye! A swaying gait that makes me think of a bard playing a lute amongst a modern day inn in a present day Dungeons and Dragons campaign.

So many thoughts I have if you'd care to hear,
So many questions posed, and answers clear.
If only we took the time to ponder more,
We'd have true appreciation, for what's in store.

Do I doubt your mind? Nay, not the least!
This message has many a dish to feast,
I will take them all in greedy feeding,
Hush now please! For I'm still eating!

If philosophy and metaphysics offer us anything, I would say that any and all possibilities, no matter how insane and contrary to what we consider truth, should not be forgotten. Was reality constructed a many a time, with every constant and constraint, designed to appear older than it is? Was every idea we have had at any point in time, even now a perversion of perception? Will it ever cease to be so?

Ah, this is a great way to start the day. :)

Your poem was great :)
