What If?

What if, 
there never was a universe, 
would it be for better or worse? 

there never was an earth, 
would there then be any worth? 

there never was a night, 
how could there be light? 

there never was a sky, 
then where would a bird fly? 

there never was a sea, 
then where would the fishes be? 

there never was a tree, 
then where would the world be? 

what if there never was a man? 
there could be no pollution, 
what would then be the effect on evolution? 

What if, 
there never was a Man?
