When God created men
she thought: “I’ll create as many as I can
to see how long it takes them to wreck the earth
so I can create humanity 2.0 when I next give birth

Almost a #clerihew, for today’s prompt on napowrimo.net: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that recounts a creation myth.” #NaPoWriMo day 19.

    I like that she’s a SHE.
    It makes sense, really, as creativity is often associated with the feminine side. Plus we’re the ones carrying life into this world. 😉
    I dislike the idea of humans ruining the Earth, or the need for a 2.0 version; but it is awfully close to reality! ☹️

      I tend to believe the earth will outlive us. Many species have died in the history of this planet. We might mess up completely, but the earth will do her own thing after that. New circumstances, new species. Hopefully smarter than mankind.
