How Else Could It Have Gone

 

 

How far back

do you wish to go?
Could

the universe

have failed to

Big Bang?

Could

the sun have failed

to be born?
Could

the moon have been

to small?
Could

it have failed

to form at all?
Could

life have been

still born?
Could

the asteroid have

passed us by?
Could Eve

have been

to shy?
Could

Neanderthals

have won the day.
Could

Columbus

have been sunk

at sea?
Could

the Pilgrims

have stayed

at home?
Could

the Revolution

have failed

in vain?
Could

Marie Antoinette

have kept

her head?
Could

the South

have won

the war?
Could

the Titanic

have stayed

afloat?
Could

Nazi Germany

have prevailed?

Could

any

of your ancestors

turned left

instead

of right?
Do

infinite realities

indeed exist?
Has

everything

in fact

occurred?
Where

does it all go

from here?
