    Who else but we can wonder at it all,
    Possessed of an intelligence that quests
    Beyond necessities that must befall
    All creatures: safety, food and mating nests?
    We, all alone on Earth, can speculate
    And ruminate on more than what we chew
    And would digest the world and then create,
    Beyond the scope of nature, something new.
    Ambitious, reckless questers, still too young
    To comprehend what’s best and realize
    On evolution’s ladder our next rung
    As Homo sapiens is growing wise,
         We now stand on the brink of that event,
         Which all along, we may surmise, was meant.
