Speaking of time, I took a course To sate curiosity Just how someone else believes Our super species came to be ~ The Story of Us told online Puts to rest the tooth & nail Survival, fittest at the top of the mountain from which we hail ~ Twas not the ax or large of tooth That got us to the peak Sizeless and vulnerable all we had Was our ability to speak ~ A warring species we overcame Doubt and annihilation With voice and reason we invented Inner-species cooperation ~ No easy ride to top of the chain Even so it happened fast Early sapiens frightened sheep How long could this good thing last ~ Doubt returned to fortify Ourselves against the other We don the pelt and tooth of wolf Taking aim against our brother ~ Now we strut our claws and fangs To intimidate the weak What’s more dangerous than angry wolves?
