               So, how did this creation come to be,
               And how may it continue to evolve
                Heading toward a greater destiny
               That may our present quandaries resolve?
               At least, right here on Earth, it seems that we,
                We Homo sapiens sapiens, must grow
                More sapient yet, until at last we’re free
                 From all our follies and have come to know
                 The wisdom that’s implicit in our souls
                 That bids us to be loving and take care
                 In our wayfaring to avoid the shoals
                 And storms that cause us ruin and despair.
                       We’ve made great progress and are nearly there,
                       Freed finally from longing and despair.
