Two Men

I wonder if long ago, Long ago, Before dinosaurs walked, Or turtle’s swam, Before Earth’s cap was wooded. Before Arabia was anchored in sand, I wonder if two men way back then While the world longed For a master plan To unite two ideas That threatened a clash That would bring an end to Man.

I wonder If these two men Could not agree, Then went their separate ways And a big bang dissolved In a searing flash To end their scale of days. I wonder If slowly life started again, To begin what we know today – The search for Shelter, The building of tools, The long moil of work and play.

I wonder If a quiet brooding Being Covets a special space And tolerates Man as long as two men Acknowledge their proper place.

Murray Wilton November 21, 1985
