Why Dont Bees Go to Heaven?
© 2008 Ronnie Williams (all rights reserved)

it seems to me the species Homo sapiens,
carries the chutzpah gene
to think they are the purpose of the universe
when they only just arrived on the scene

whats even worse, they bear a curse
of believing theyre the only form of life
to never die, and go on living
somewhere high up in the sky

so why dont bees go to heaven?
and trees go to heaven?
amoeba, krill and fleas go to heaven?
its not surprisin that theyre not arisin
cause man created god

this grain of sand upon an infinite beach
had been supporting life for trillions of spins
then along came humans, who started assumin
that this was where it begins
so profoundly naïve, they began to believe
these primates were the only ones
to never die, and go on living
somewhere high up in the sky

so why dont worms go to heaven?
and germs go to heaven?
spiders, snakes and sperms go to heaven?
its quite expected that theyre not resurrected
cause man created god

if man created Zeus, and the god of The Sun
if man created Shiva, and the god of Abraham
from all of life, why should the only one saved
be the species worst behaved?

well, thats because
that same species, Homo sapiens
carries the chutzpah gene
to think they are the purpose of the universe
when they only just arrived on the scene

whats even worse, they bear a curse
of believing theyre the only form of life
to never die, and go on living
somewhere high up in the sky

so why dont whales go to heaven?
and snails go to heaven?
orang-utans and quail go to heaven?
they dont think twice about paradise
because man created god

so why dont bees go to heaven? (etc.)

    On a related note, here’s a really good atheist store I found. Well, primarily atheist and science stuff…

    Aristotle’s Muse

    Maybe wearing an atheist T-shirt won’t change the world, but then again, maybe it could.
