Anti Fossil

A Poem by Dennis The Tiger Cat (dave)


Babysitting and tool making
Predators, prey and mass extinctions
In lucky ingenuity 
Worn out fancy shoes
Tired social responsibility
Pairs of clever clothes
Worn just right
Warming you and me
  us and them
Shaping flesh that lasts
Into enduring creatures
Breaking boundaries
Making history
Remembering what came
Before the dying
Before the birthing
How to keep our sons, our daughters
From becoming, exactly nothing
Into becoming,,, 
Much More than water
 more than dirt, more than rock
Far beyond just a shape, dissolved into an object
Formed into, some passive landmark. . .
It takes each other 
To make us more
Because we care, to take good care
Of one another...
And thats religion
And God is optional
In this survival,
 it takes a human 
 with a human
To transcend time
It takes each other
 to make one more
It takes a thought
To see it through
The darkest dark
  to make it last
It takes the group
To realize hope
 To shine on through
It takes us all
To go so far
