Were We Gondwanaland

Were we Gondwanaland
Forest of the Gonds
Longing for suture
To the mighty Pangaea
Laurasia, our meek mistress
Held with tentative hands
Locked in stony and sullen silence
Were we this ancient land
Gondwanaland, Gondwanaland
Were we
To begin again
Drifting towards orogeny
Gathering before Iapetus
Awaiting impatient Cambrian
Perchance to witness
In magnitude and zeal
Primordial puzzlement
Before evolution
Protracted by rifts
Yet beginning anew
