OUR NEXT FRONTIER
What is the next significant frontier
To be transcended by our human race,
The next important barrier to clear
Now we have entered into outer space?
I speculate it’s something in our mind,
Some latency that’s still to be released,
Some lurking virtue not as yet refined
By which our species’ worth will be increased.
It’s wisdom that our kind has ever sought,
The sapience for which we’re doubly named,
Discerning how to do that which we ought
Instead of foolish deeds for which we’re blamed.
Once Homo sapiens avoids that trap,
We’ll rise above our rep as Homo sap.
