I am the end product of evolution’s plan,
I am a brainy, civilised man.
As far removed from the lowly beast
As the apple is from the one celled yeast.
I have dispensed with fangs and claws,
I live in social groups and follow laws:
Said the Cro-Magnon as he trembled on the brink
Of extinction – for he was just the link
Between ape and Home sapiens, who will also sink
Into oblivion, unless we can think
Of proactive ways to develop our senses, and brains
So we’ll be worthy ancestors, not just fossil remains!
