A Life Of Strife


My respects to this towering life.

Not so much for the Theory

That goes by his name.

But for the life …

Its tragedy and strife.

And how he rose

To end that myth, of Creation, 

Starting some 6000 years ago

By the Big Daddy In The Sky,

Endorsed and brutally enforced

By the Church

And widely regarded in West as fact

Untill Darwin proposed. And won.

Overturned the institutionalised belief.

For all of humanity. For ever.

Charles Darwin
