Evolution

/ Made simple

 

Life first appeared as little microbes.

Then latter they would grow into fishes.

Then the fishes got ambitious and walked onto the land.

 

Then there came monkeys and then out of them,

Some walked tall and they turned into humans.

 

This all took only a short time as compared to,

 

How old the planet is.

The age of the solar system,

and the age of the universe.

 

They say that we humans have only been here

for a very short time.

I wouldnít agree with this,

It seems Iím quite old cause Iím nearly nine.
