Where Angels Fear to Dream…
PAST III – A History of Evolution in Marxist Theory

When Nature Started Thinking

For when a tiny carbon compound
A repeat performance gives –
Bubble bubble at the double –
That’s the moment that it lives.

From the inorganic to organic
Low life began to form.
A unity in conflict;
A living struggle born.

And so within a nod,
A step, a leap, a wink,
Nature on our little world
Had at last begun to think.

From the lowest of the low
In conditions very much adverse
Nor was our world the crucible
Of our thriving universe.

(But this you know already
So it’s of little worth
From here on in, I’ll concentrate
Upon our quark-like Earth.)
