So it all began according to the plan,
or random, exploding bits; take your pick.
In the garden of apes God created man
and woman, which was the cooler trick.
But humans couldn’t wait to screw it up
and that drive has not yet abated;
Call it sin, call it nature’s flop,
mostly masochism never sated.
With gifts from God and best practice from Chuck
we also started learning and doing things that don’t suck.
Hold on, human conceit rushes in even now,
The story began before us, and how!
There’s a rumor of a rather sizeable pop
that kicked off expansion they say will not stop
Details abound for the events that surround
this blast extraordinaire; as good pound for pound
as the theories of any young child
on why the man on the moon smiled.
Whatever we say, think, and know
there was a start to this show.
Now matter, for and against,
formed pools more and less dense;
And before you knew it there were stars,
and galaxies, groups, and clusters;
those that couldn’t cut mustard
went nova-pop, seen near and far.
