The God of Hope and Circumstance,
snapped his fingers and the World began.
Inventor of the sharks and fire ants,
for pundit’s praise, created man.
All life evolved by selection chance,
by expiring flaws, from ordained plan.
Was man designed for second birth,
our time on Earth, a trial event?
Could man improve, deserving Earth,
with evolving change, design intent?
Or was God faulted by wit and mirth,
and too forgiving to ask for rent.
