Before there was a thing called "Man" The Maker had a better plan. He filled he sea with little fish Of every kind that He might wish. Then He made the dinosaur To rule the land from shore to shore. Next came the monks, orang-otan. Gorillas, and an ape called "Man". Man is half God, and beast one half. He writes his own grim epitaph. The Maker thinks, "Next time the plants? Not yet, until I've tried the ants".
