                    What next in evolution might emerge
                    On planet Earth will doubtless be our doing,
                    And maybe even now we’re on the verge
                    Of what is worthiest for our pursuing.
                    What would that be but further to enhance
                    That sapience for which we’re doubly named,
                     Amounting to our noblest advance
                     Beyond the follies for which we’ve been blamed.
                     Wisdom indeed is our implicit goal,
                     What every human should be striving for;
                     Without attaining that we can’t be whole,
                     Yet finally achieving it, we’ll soar,
                          The highest state we hope to realize
                          Is mastering the art of being wise.
