Ironic Sciences

A Poem by Jennifer Johnston

Perhaps Adam was the first Homo Sapien,

and took his young Eve for a wife.

and they were driven from peace by a comet,

the large flaming star of their strife.


Maybe Cain was insufferable to Abel

and as brothers they scrabbled and bled,

and their squabble drew a hungry striped she-cat,

and Abel ended up dead.


And Noah knew walkers unable,

and knew whales would follow his wake,

and so left the behemoths outside the ark,

if naught for conveniences sake.


And the chicken was born from a dragon,

less scaly than his brotherhood clutch,

and the finches on Darwin’s dark isles,

evolved to eat berries, and such.


I once fell in love with an atheist,

and like Christ I did not cast a stone,

the atheist loved me and left me,

and I see now why I’m alone.
