A Short Humane History of Man
Brian D' Aoust (with apologies to Mr. Frost)
Something there is that doesn't love a brain
Could it be from Mother Nature's shame
At what God wrought; knowing not who to blame Nor what evolving instincts sought to tame?
As coalescing tribes found ways to thrive
By targeting "the other"-as bad lies
While promising nirvana when we die!
These myths, persisting for millennia-are lies. But rather than admit some new beginnings
Man clung to worn out tropes with logic thinning And shallow thought then came to be "new normal" With common folk rejecting all things formal
So, civil discourse landing with a bump,
Small wonder that we ended up with Trump!
