Rendered Antediluvian

by A. N. Irvano


They say
no person
could make the choice
to push the
button
kill
every person
on this planet
I say,
“Clean slate.”
I learned in biology
—i did learn, i promise—
a man that came
before darwin
thought the same thing
that scientist just proved
animals can evolve
in one lifetime
my teacher mocked the idea
she laughed
we laughed with her
only one can be
right
only one can
win
the fish—
they always win
they’re simple
they’re like amino acids
they’re the building blocks
they aren’t laughing
they are doing what
I can’t do in one lifetime
and that is
evolving
