Darren Cole – Deakin University
Cause and effect, strict progression of time
From the initial bang to the last black
We are just a blip, but trying to climb
Our time in the universe, lest a crack
Dust spiralled and formed a sphere of molten rock
The molten rock cools as minerals grow
Creating a crust that hardened the block
But this truth only one person does know
When the creatures came, he was already old
Observing the savage culture of ‘saur
Until the great stone turned the planet cold
Ushering an age of warm blood and war
And so Father Time sheds a single tear
Knowing the age of peace is nowhere near.
