amoeba

Dismiss me not as an object of mirth,

For as an undying amoeba, I’ve taken birth-

From the ancient ocean of primordial earth.

I ingest diatoms and enlarge my girth

Then split in two and this is my worth!

For I can last forever in the very same form,

Since I adapt to everything, I can never come to harm.

I absorb new ideas, my shape is elastic;

Never destructive, though I can flex like plastic.

I am the protoplasm , generating all that you see–

My descendants are the birds, beasts, you, and , yes– me!

This is why I abhor rigidity , for i see it is linked

To the broad road that leads to many species- extinct!
