Before humans, with God all alone, He thought: 'Great leap into the unknown, But of chimps I need a superior strain - I'll give them a much more efficient brain, In which the traits of reverence and compliance are sown.' But to God's unbounded dismay, He found some killer humans led the others astray. And with various forms of religion and race Among the seven billion, and growing apace, A tweak of genes was needed – not possible for many a day. He has assured me that in centuries hence, Humans will have politicians with some sense, Everyone with high IQs and learning with ease, Ensuring jobs for all, and preventing war, famine and disease. So do sympathise with God – His task is so immense! Ken Gorman, May, 2012
