Strange Fancy For A Naked Ape

Have you forgotten what you are?

                                 Let me remind you.

You are:
         A collection of

                  Which are made of
                     Atoms, which are made of
                           Protons, neutrons and electrons
                                 Which are made of
                                      Quarks and gluons,

    You are
              A gene's way of making another gene.
                  A naked ape crawling on the surface
                      Of a ball or rock and water, turning round and round
                              A minor yellow sun.

And you think yourself
                         Made in the image
                              Of some deity.

If so, your gods
   Can't be very important gods,

                              Just saying.


  1. Actually, I'm 100% Star Stuff! That's pretty wonderful, you have to admit.

  2. Oh yes, I wrote about that a while ago.

  3. Oh, Bill,

    I'm not, nor have I ever been a naked ape. I am indeed made in the image and likeness of God. How He chose to put His image and likeness into me was up to Him. And it is He Who keeps all those bits and pieces working the way they should, in all their complexity. :o) A pretty impressive God, I'd say. Yep. :o)

  4. I love your description, Bill.
