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!
