Now Professor Rick
Taught arithmetic,
But he loved to pontificate;
For hours he’d expound
On matters profound—
His views left no room for debate.

The class sat enthralled;
His wisdom, so-called,
Was charming beyond its true worth;
His high sounding words,
(Some I’d seldom heard)
Like a torrent came streaming forth.

Loud “Ohhhs” could be heard
As dawning occurred—
(He always expected it would);
They’d swoon with delight
As Rick shed new light—
As though each one now understood!

In mind he’d resolved
That man had evolved
From monkeys or some type of ape;
For millions of years
Through bloodshed and tears
The world as he knew it took shape.

‘With the great “big bang”
The cosmos began’,
He spouted as matter of fact;
‘From nothing at all
Came things great and small’—
To me his presumptions were cracked!

To my simple brain
No man can explain
How something from nothing can be;
Do cars just appear?
(New models each year)?—
Impossible!! Don’t you agree?

Should One pre-exist
Who lives in our midst—
Creator – Divine Engineer!
Then that simplifies
To observant eyes
How ordered creation appeared.

Now Professor Rick,
In my view should stick
To solutions mathematic;
Ohhh!! But maths must come
From that self same One!
Now for Rick that’s problematic!

Excellent. The rhymes were well selected and not obvious and the meter was spot on. The message was a great one too.
