Origins?

By Kilmo

 

The disc covered the sun for a week,

And the animals in the forest,

Hid their eyes,

The largest of the carnivores,

Thinking it was winter,

As they hid themselves where it was warmest,

Convinced it was time to hibernate,

It took the smallest first,

And the things that fell to earth,

Had nothing to do with the lives that had ascended to the stars,

The lizards made it pause,

And for a while it rained scales,

And freezing blood,

Until what had brought the circle across the sun got bored,

Of the experiment,

And moved,

To insects,

For a while it rained,

Strange badly formed creatures,

With more arms and legs,

Than they needed,

And eyes that reached,

Round the back of their heads,

But it was when it got to the apes,

That the disc and the creatures within it,

Really got down to business.
