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?

Frightened, heavily armed sheep
