Homo noeticus will be our name
Once we’ve grown more illumined, and evolved
To realize that sapience is our aim
And of our foolishness we’ve been absolved.
Such gnosis has lain latent in our genes
Although made manifest in harbingers
Wiser than we (who still remain as teens):
What’s evident in them, within us stirs.
The only hope for earth’s futurity
Is man’s advancing toward maturity.
