Atlas Shrugs
Felix Dennis

As mass extinctions come and go,
They sneer at Michelangelo;
Shakespeare’s genius is just
A rumour to volcanic dust.

Bacilli and fungal spores
Lose no sleep on Newton’s Laws;
Nor do polar ice-caps learn
Of odes upon a Grecian Urn.

Neither moon nor asteroid
Alters course for Jung or Freud;
Atlas shrugs and rolls his eyes
When hairless apes philosophise.

C'est formidable... et le monde semble plus léger quand Atlas hausse les épaules lorsque les singes sans poil philosophent ... :))
