Long, long ago at the dawn of time
Even before the primordial slime
When stretching ahead were all the millennia
In which quite a lot, if not more, even many a
Tragic mistake or foul evil plot
Lay in the future but not the year dot.
At the start of the writing of history’s first page
(when many an era and aeon and age
Loomed far ahead to the greatest extent)
Took place a uniquely dramatic event
Some call it the bang that was huge if not big
(please pass me my drink and light me a cig).
