Hitchen’s Bronzed Timeline

It was precisely, 100,000 years ago or so
That man decided to make this planet his own
There was murder, there was rape, all the while
Even genocide just to keep folks in their zone
But never in this time was there a call to stop
Leaving man and his temptations all alone
So around 3000 years ago finally came the heavenly call
To end the immoral actions and to change the tone

So it became a cause in a mostly backwards land
Very barbaric, superstitious, and savage too
Nothing could be read as they sat among the stones
Unlike the Chinese who already knew
But the slaughter didn’t stop, nor the genocide
It increased to serve the new leadership in you
While living in the poorest, least resourceful place
Where the only moisture was the morning dew

But it is a good thing that this occurred in this place
Where little or nothing would ever seem to change
Where even little things would be noticed and cause outrage
Like a miracle happening outside of scientific range
It was good that they only appeared in this isolation
Where anything besides breathing became strange
And it the middle of this single place of revelations
Morals would be born for the planet. How strange?
