                    What are we here to do but realize
                    The essence of our homo sapience,
                    Which means our human mission’s to grow wise,
                    And that potentiality’s immense;
                    Yet, even long ago, in ancient Greece
                    And with the sages of the Orient,
                    Wisdom arose to bring our forebears peace
                    By straightening out their woeful, wayward bent
                    Reported in old scriptures as our Fall,
                    For which we’ve henceforth suffered to this day,
                    Failing to acknowledge Wisdom’s call
                    But living forlorn, cast off and astray,
                        Until new revelation leads us well
                        Toward heavenly bliss, beyond this ghastly hell.
