Creationism

putting one foot before
the first one steps
and then
without stumbling go back to
putting one foot before

wishful thinking has always been a preferred replacement to reason

and then there was the elephant
evolved in a time of inflationism
and Pinocchio promises
belief inspires elationism
but remember

wishful thinking has always been a preferred replacement to reason

creationism steps lightly
creationism walks tall
creationism falls backwards
but on which dinosaur does it land?

putting one foot before
the ground was ever there
