Earth, fire, wind, and water.
Shelter, food, clothes, and daughter.


Herbs, poultices, hexes,
Draining swamps, closing wells, dissection really vexes...
... And eventually - we have XX, XY; the two sexes.


From pebbles, from stars:
We have Venus, we have Mars.
From cavemen, from twigs:
We have CERN, we have Higgs.

We've come far - you're here, you're reading this.
We can go further - but is there anything we'd miss?

(Undeniably. That's a worry we'll just have to dismiss.)
