Only the rarest of authors can demolish the “Two Cultures” divide within a single phrase, conjoining a scientific education with the “classical” like two strands of DNA (or like Baucis and Philemon, take your pick). One such author is The Digital Cuttlefish.
When reinventing history
Itâ€™s best to keep the mystery;
If witnesses are noticed, it is best to take them out.
And although the act is telling,
Youâ€™d be better off expelling
Doctor Myers, if you see him, just because the manâ€™s a lout.
You see, PZ is a witness
To the movieâ€™s lack of fitnessâ€”
He is one selection pressure that would render it extinct.
So, with â€œWANTED!â€ posters printed,
To the cinema they sprinted,
And they passed around the mugshots just as soon as they were inked.
The policemen, at the ready,
Kept the ticket-takers steady
While they watched with eyes like eagles for the devil in disguise.
Yes! They spotted Dr. Myers,
Looking just like in their fliers!
The policemen, quite correctly, gave the doctor a surprise.
When they said heâ€™d be arrested
If their actions he protested,
He complied at once (that should have raised suspicions, donâ€™t you think?)
Once his actions had been thwarted
And he left the line, escorted,
Looking back to his companion in the line, he gave a winkâ€¦.
So this little movie trip is
Like a Trojan Eohippus
That delivered Richard Dawkins deep within the fortress walls
I canâ€™t wait to read the story
Of the battle and the gloryâ€”
Cos the trailer to this feature shows the heroâ€™s got some balls!
It’s a good thing we’ve got the Cuttlefish, because a world which has gone this mad deserves a poet.
