Amnesia…

***

A nameless shadow… Flits across the face… Of Science… The Theory of Evolution… Has not been proven… The ‘missing links’ for each species… Have not come forth… From the fossil record…The constituent parts of our DNA… Have proven far older… Than the Earth itself… They can only have come from deep, deep-space… Yet, in one sense, we have always been here… Each catastrophic cataclysm… Endured… Has been but a pruning… A clarion call… To new growth. The ushering in… Of the previously overlooked… Those ekers out of existence… The unassuming… Unsung… Survivors!

***

But if our very make-up… Forestalls the evolutionary leap… Then who… Or what… Actually makes it?… Inevitably… We must turn to Memory… For our answer… We all have an inkling of… How she works… She, too, is a gardener… She cuts… And she prunes… And she grafts… She contracts… Or shrinks… Both time and space… And has a mind only… For the outstanding… The memorable is… Precisely… In this sense… A cut above… And where there are gaps…. In the narrative… Of her mind?.. She fills them in!.. Willy-nilly… Haphazardly… She creates… New species… And this is how… Our planet… Forgets…

***

We, on the other hand… Can never forget… As we speak… And watch the horror… In Europe… Again unfold… Millions of graves… Worldwide… Emit… The sound… Of turning… We all now know… The one place on earth… Where Jimmy Cee… Can still get a gig!… The groaning escalates… And the calls for yet more dilution… Of the national stock… Erupt from all the expected sources… The mingling of races… My First Big History Book… Called it… It made little sense… Back then… It makes even less sense now… Except… The rich get richer… And the poor get poorer… Only if they manage… To survive.
