Poetry Monday

I was just having fun with this song when I wrote it years ago. Things you ponder when studying Mythology lol.

Creation Question

Do you think we’re all ants on a rock in space
Slowly floatin’ through infinity?
Marching off to our jobs in one mindless mob,
Goin’ nowhere for eternity.
Well we think we’re a superpower
Just because we don’t have tails.
But could it be we were made of clay-
Standing on the back of a turtle,
Sleepin’ in the belly of a whale.

Do you think we evolved from a simian race,
Or did it all start in the sea?
Now that the Big Bangs all the craze we wonder if God’s 7 days, Are the same as days to you and me.
Do you think we were sent from Mars
Came in jars
From the stars
In a test they knew would fail?
Or could it be we were made of clay
Standing on the back of a turtle
Sleeping in the belly of a whale.

Bridge: Well we’re all spirits, and we’re all souls
Yes that’s what I believe in, that’s what I’ve been told
Where did we come from, oh nobody truly can say
Where are we headed? Well that’s the question of the day

Do you think we were gods who just lost our way
And got caught up in this groove?
Do you think that we came from the Pleiades
And if we did why’d we have to move?
Do you think it’s a lottery
Pick A or B
And then you’ll see
With the right wind it could sail?
Or could it be we were made of clay-
Standing on the back of a turtle
Sleepin’ in the belly of a whale

I really like this! I like all the allusions to various myths and theories people have come up with.

Great song, R.G.

Wonderful imagery and it is amazing the things you think of while studying myths and legneds.

This is a wonderful song (what can I say, I'm a sucker for myths). Have a happy 4th of July.

I sort of see the Indigo Girls doing this, or at least an influence from them
