“A MYTH OF CREATION – THE GREAT SPLIT” BY NANCY WORTHINGTON ©1998
Can lay an egg-and-a half
In a day-and-a half
And hatch a world-and-a-half
Which split in half through schizogenesis
In a week-and-a half,
Why did it take so many millions of years
For the split-infinitive (speech)
And the split-level house (nuclear family)
To appear in Homo sapiens?
Is it because a-god is a schizoid-and-a-half?
(Well, how else could a-god-be-a-father-a-son-and-a holy ghost
And display delusions of grandeur?)
And Homo sapiens in general tend toward
Sameness, commonality and status quo?
(Same, sane, unchanging except by force-
or unpredictable crazy and creative)
There you have it.
A-god was insane when creating Homo sapiens
And continues to prod Homo sapiens with
Illogical and absurd behavioral demands.
And that is why to this day
Life for the Homo Sapien
Is a terminal case of dis-ease.
