Our human enterprise is, yes, to know
But even more importantly to grow.
No other species learns so well as we,
And making knowledge seems our destiny,
Yet to what end if not for wisdom’s sake,
Helping the universe evolve and wake?
Though nothing’s more complex than human brains,
Learning to use them well is what remains.
Blessed as we are with intellectual tools,
We’ve proved ourselves so far but brainy fools
Who threaten now the sustenance of Earth.
Can we ascend and validate our worth,
Or will we prove a failed experiment
Unable to fulfill Cosmic Intent?
