One Less Animal To Help Me Evolve

Poem By john tiong chunghoo

put one child into a room
give him a doggie
to write his page

put another child into a room
give him a doggie,
a turtle, a caged dove
to fill his days

put another child into a room
give him a doggie, a gold fish,
a fighting fish and a parrot
to string his tales

now let them all talk to you
about their adventures

the first one would look at you
and probably say nothing

the second would probably rant
how the doggie had tried to bite the turtle
and how he had saved it
keeping it with the dove

the third child, he probably
would ask you whether you
have enough time to hear him out
- a whole world of adventures

he had spent time talking to the parrot
feeding the fish, and trying to get
the fighting fish to spread its colourful fins
and in between treat his doggie like another
man telling him about all the other creatures

now see the first child as not having
the animals because they have all become extinct
how less resourceful the brain has become

and now if an interconnected mind
is a more powerful mind
we will be so much less creative or inventive
50 years from now going by the rate
animals are becoming extinct

an extinct animal is a part of our brain emptied
struck of chance to evolve into a higher level of intelligence

for all creatures are put here to help men to evolve

there are coded messages in every bird's chirp
to help the brain to develop

there are coded messages on the turtle's shell
its exotic designs to help the brain to evolve

there are coded messages in the cry of each
animal to help the brain become creative, inventive

in each colour, in each feather there are coded messages
to help human, the main actor of this universe, to
shine
