History Lessons And Their Origins: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart


The first sign of nightfall:

Human existence had a story to tell.
The very first day didn't go too well.
Man looked at the sky and had a panic attack
by wondering if daylight would ever come back!


The first sign of social protest:

Ancient man was discovered and seen as uptight.
His blatant act of defiance still sitting upright
and it's an archaic mystery which ceases to linger
with the bony remains of this middle finger!


The first prototype of the cave dwellers:

The writing, it seems, was on the wall
but for millions of years the engine would stall
as their visionary mural left them in the lurch
when trying to illustrate Google search!


The first reflection in the mirror:

From the edge of this pond so clear and still
the face of a stranger would test his will
and to question something that man didn't know:
"Are you a friend or are you a foe?"


The first orgasm:

The very first man seemed destined to find
that the daily hunt would occupy his mind
so the woman was neglected and left behind
until she discovered a new way to unwind!

Very enlightening

Well versed explanations of the more important stages of history. The last verse makes a lot of sense and suggests women soon became sexually proactive and the first verse is an intriging concept of how man may have coped with the dark of night. The first reflection verse reminds me of when my dog looks in the mirror and barks. LOL
