It may have first happened in a salty sea,
From reduced chemicals in a geothermal vent,
Or from day life's form was lent,
Free replicating prions in a carbon-mineral soup,
A strand of D or RNA,
Finally pointing the way,
Pre-cellular self replicating machines,
Must have incorporated minerals to have achieved their means,
Even if the message was sent from space,
The earth's environment has set the pace,
Life's genetic codes contain within them,
The mark of earth's specific circannual and circadian rhythm,
Even our bodies show adaptation,
To the earth's specific gravitation,
Perhaps the most fundamental bio-Creation of all,
Was when these carbon-mineral structures recognized self and erected a cell wall
