As time goes by

many years ago
someone with a very big name
pressed that star-shot belly-button
and there was quite a shudder
some suggest a rather large bang
as the generator started up
generation generating generation
knocking everything into shape

and each new generation
sits on the knowledge-shoulder
of all previous generations
the continual eating of the apple
and the savouring of each bite
knowledge begetting understanding, beauty wonder
as the mystery of the universe unfolds
in the mind of its creation

generation generating generation
forever stretching skywards
towards the sun and the stars,
and as time goes by
there will come that day
when the hand of a new born baby
will part the clouds
to see unveiled the full majesty of God
