The Meaning of Evolution 

By: Yuan Chingming

More advanced in evolution

Than     their human masters are     chickens

As they     outnumber the     stars in the whole

Universe, and     occupy     every corner of

The entire planet,                    but as in-dividuals


No chicken can fly higher than a low


Fence, make love within                     its confinement

Or live together     with its children. The     only

Thing     they do besides     laying eggs and growing

Meat is standing     there, day and night,     as if


Meditating about the meaning of evolution
