The Inner Ocean Hypothesis

Algae and plankton sporadically rinsed up effectively
Seaweed clad naked continents in green veils
From stardust constructions cells elusively
Rearranged the scenery in numerous scales

A primitive organism, predecessor of mutations
Along the evolutionary ladder crawled ashore
In water transformed during thousand generations
Then made its debut on the primary action floor

Still its ensemble accumulates our presence
The expression of oceans lurk inside

The building block, water, is our essence
We’re like a moving, perpendicular, biological tide
Salt spices blood sweat and tears
As the bodily recipe’s most essential grain
Due to the wave creator Heart, pulsation rears
As rivers through what anatomy calls veins

And limestone-white structures hold our marrow
As in marine animals that swim free
(But we’re) separated
through tiny variations along time’s arrow
Unknown to the fetus in the Amniotic Sea
The quintuple man, the five senses division
Add two for the number of world’s oceans
And two hidden gene threads may fulfil that vision
Intuition and instinct create the seven faceted motion
Particles that once streamed astray
Now form the basis in our DNA
Salt spices blood, sweat and tears
As the bodily recipe’s most essential grain
Due to the wave creator Heart pulsation rears
As rivers through what anatomy calls veins
