Evaluation

From sperm and egg, two points of view,
We joined in enterprise,
Proliferating from those two
To macroscopic size.
evaluat001_400Our children, now, are multiskilled
In industries complex.
We could have been a bird, big billed,
Or tyrannosaurus rex.
But our scheme was more restricted
In our body plan.
Our aim, there, was well predicted
So we ended up as man.
This thing, I must tell, admit
Functions fairly well.
It eats, it thinks, its clothes still fit –
At least for a spell.
With modest meals, I think that it
Could keep a decent waist.
By exercise and vegetables
Its growth won’t be disgraced.
To cut down on digestibles
May require will
To deflate expandables
With culinary skill.
The thinking part way up on top
Can sometimes be a pain.
Its cogitations never stop.
Dispensing with the brain
Might make operation better, clear,
Far less complicated.
That space between either ear
Could then be allocated
To keeping pets – a mouse or bat,
A nest of active ants.
Or perhaps, under a hat,
Shade addicted plants.
But, I guess, we’re stuck with brains,
Which, at end, might make
For economic, social gains.
Finally, for goodness sake,
The thing might yield good sense
On just the right occasion.
A small but pleasing recompense
For intellect invasion.
