    :-: Wheel of Fortune



    We started as two,
    Then the two became one.
    The one became two again,
    But were they done?
    Not at all--for the two
    Became four, do ye ken?
    Then the four's turn to double,
    Quadruple, and then
    Right back to the one again
    Did they return.
    Then the one became none--
    Tell me, what did you learn?

    Ok, probably way off but these were the ideas that came to mind

    We started as two, (gametes, sperm and egg)
    Then the two became one. (zygote, initial fertilized egg)
    The one became two again, (cell division)
    But were they done?
    Not at all--for the two
    Became four, do ye ken? (more cell division)
    Then the four's turn to double,
    Quadruple, and then (more cell division)
    Right back to the one again (single human body)
    Did they return.
    Then the one became none-- (death)
    Tell me, what did you learn?

    I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. - Edgar Allan Poe

    Bunch together a group of people deliberately chosen for strong religious feelings, and you have a practical guarantee of dark morbidities expressed in crime, perversion, and insanity. - H.P. Lovecraft

    I just did that to test your self-esteem.

    No, I'm kidding--you got it exactly! Well done!

    I must be losing my touch....

    Care to take a look at my next one, then? It's (not necessarily harder--though I hope it is--but) more complex.
