                       Who are the harbingers of who we’ll be
                       When we have reached our true maturity,
                       We Homo sapiens, not fully wise
                       With more capacity to realize?

                       Both Socrates and Aristotle showed
                       Their ways to travel along Wisdom’s Road
                       While Jesus and his saintly followers
                       Taught how to free us from the ancient curse

                      Of disobedience to God’s command
                      To love each other and to understand
                      That only by our acts of charity
                      Shall we become who we are meant to be:

                           It’s by our loving kindness we’ll proclaim
                           The sapience implicit in our name.
