Since, as a biochemist, I have had a long standing interest in evolution, the following verse emerged the other evening as
my own kind of deep sigh about the crazy state in which humanity seems to find itself these days. It is so sad that it is
fairly funny and I thought it might make a suitable little piece for your humour magazine.
Here We Go
Not lost entirely - but nearly so -
The human beast submerges fear
And disregards the stark, cold fact of slow defeat.
His cranial growth,
Outdistanced by the death of instinct and of love,
