In the Beginning was Plenty,
and Plenty was Enough,
and Man knew it not.
And God whispered in Man's Inner Ear
and told him that he could reproduce at will
unlike the Beasts and the Lily of the Field.
But reproducing plentifully was not enough
and overpopulation befell Man's habitat
which he called, variously Eden, Atlantis, Shangri-la.
And so we spread and spread
(we would say advanced)
until we populated the Whole World
while Satan danced.
