Poetry – Apes with egos

Apes with egos

Escaping from the plains

Wearing their tuxedos.

Apes with big brains

Super-inflated egos.

They are not animals;

They have a soul!

They enjoy carnivals

And are in control!

Escaping from the plains

Wearing their tuxedos.

Apes with big brains

Super-inflated egos.

They can feel pain.

They can think and feel.

Snort cocaine.

Buy their next meal.

Escaping from the plains

Wearing their tuxedos.

Apes with big brains

Super-inflated egos.

Animals are lesser

Use them as you will.

Kill them for pleasure.

Until you’ve had your fill.

Escaping from the plains

Wearing their tuxedos.

Apes with big brains

Super-inflated egos.

Opher – 3.10.2021

It always astounds me when I find someone who really believes that we are not just animals. Somehow in their heads they separate us from the rest of life. There are plants, animals and us!

They have been told we have a ‘soul’ that makes us special.

They have been told that we are god created.

They have been told that we are eternal.

They have been told that the animals and plants were put here for us to use.

They are fools.

There is little special about us.

We are apes with big brains and slightly more intelligence. That doesn’t make us any more special than any other creature.

If they knew animals better they would know that they are capable of feelings, can think and experience terror.

If people weren’t so stupidly arrogant maybe they would not gaffe and hack at poor creatures. They’d understand the terror and agony they were causing.

If only we were really intelligent.

If only we weren’t so gullible and stupid.

I'd like to hear from you...
