And on the sixth day

After light was separated from darkness,
Sky vaulted from sea,
When land was formed and trees bore fruit,
After stars were flung into orbit and sun shone
On flocks, herds, swarms and shoals,

On the sixth day; God made man;

Man and his enamel teeth
Man and his rubber tongue
Man and his ivory ribs
Man and his wiry fingers
Man and his clayed feet
Man and his Eve,
And God said it was good.

Then Man,

Man made his sling
Man made his bronze spear
Man made his steel sword
Man made his iron chariots
Man made his idols: gold and silver
Man made his laws and his wars
Man made his flags and his borders
Man made his tanks, jets and rockets

Man made men slaves
Man made woman stray

Man made Eve bleed
Man made children weep.

When will man rest with God?
