                 The novel notion transhumanity
                 Implies how next our species may evolve—
                 Presumably toward greater sanity,
                 Which many ancient issues should resolve.

                We’ve long envisioned angels up above
                As images of what we might become,
                As paragons of peacefulness and love,
                Were we our deepest essences to plumb.

                Now that we’ve grown so capable of harm,
                Putting at risk our very planet’s life,
                It’s time we universally disarm
                And practice ways that calmly settle strife.

                     Those angels whom we’ve worshipped from afar
                     May prove exemplary of who we truly are.
