Now & Then?

When everything was new, & in its place
Exactly; a perfect marriage of time & space:
An ideal plan made real by no creator;
Pristine forms; harmonious symbiosis
Of dimensions; poles & the equator
Linked by lat & long lines straitly; osmosis
Didn't pilfer soul nor matter; the All
Was One, not fractured, shot beyond recall..

But, everything now, of course, is chaos, out
Of synch & joint? Everyone works & rests
And plays so hard, it's like the ancients fighting
Over shards of broken urns? The tests
Of faith & conflicts of The New, righting
All the wrongs of old, persist, no doubt?
