In the Beginning (Nonsense Poem)

04/03/2017
At first there was nothing. There really was none.
There was none to call or to answer the phone.
And then there was something, to put it real short.
There was sort of something all over the court.
Which court? And which which? I’m sorry to preach,
but you just said that every last bit within reach
was full of great nothing (Was empty or full?
I’m sorry to breach, but did you go to school?).
Well, hell, I can see that someone’s being smart.
Would do the mood good to go back to the start.
At first there was nothing. There really was none.
The phone that was notting just went on and on.
I’m not! Yes, I’m not! said the phone to creation,
I’m not yet at all and it’s not a vacation!
And then there was something, as some may recall
(although there was nobody there, none at all),
and then there were trees, and somebodies, and bees –
the rest they call history (even the cheese).
