Why are humans so messed up?

Message from Writer

Hi, I'm Billy, and in my free time I like to satirize and mock humanity and stereotypes. I also eat koalas for lunch, and my hobby is electrocuting kittens.

I know, I'm an awful person.

Everything I said up there is false, btw...

...or is it?

Okay, I also write some nice and optimistic things too; I'm not that grumpy. It depends on my mood.

100% of people who drink water die or will die. Therefore, water kills you.

Things that drive me nuts:
1. When people spell COVID-19 as "Covid 19"
2. When people say, "me and Bob decided to go there" instead of "Bob and I decided to go there"
3. When people spell "color" with a "u"
4. ...and much more (I'll create a post on this)

Humans are just Monkeys

April 5, 2021

Humans                                are                        just                                        monkeys
            With                                    Twitter and                         Wi-fi
        Who                     think they                        are so                                     cool
                since                             they                             have the                                newest
            phone


Humans                                are                        just                                        monkeys
            With                 three-piece suits                        and                         pompous speeches
                      Who                 think                they are            so          charismatic
            since            they                     got                     elected                            for
                        President


Humans                                are                        just                                        monkeys
        With            calculators                    and                       pencils
                    Who think            they                      are                 so                smart
    since                        they                    proved                                that
                                                                            1+1 is 2


Humans                                are                        just                                        monkeys
        With                    wooden hammers                and            Harvard law degrees
                    Who think they                        are            so                        fair
since                    they                found                an innocent black person
            GUILTY


Humans                                are                        just                                        monkeys
     With            statues of themselves     thinking        and            philosophical quotes
        Who            think they            are                 so                                    wise
                    since                                    they                             said
                         "This statement is false"


Humans                                are                        just                                        monkeys
                With            white lab coats                      and        particle accelerators
        Who         think            they            are            so                clever
            since                                    they                discovered            that gravity
                                    EXISTS


Humans                                are                        just                                        monkeys
     With                                    automatic guns             and                       flags
               Who think                    they are              so                    patriotic
  since                         they                           nuked     an                             entire
                    city


Humans                                are                        just                                        monkeys
                But                        a            million            times                 stupider
    Since                    have                                nothing better                to do
                than                     to            bomb                 buildings
                         start             genocides 
                                                                             declare                 wars
                            destroy                  rainforests
        burn                fossil         fuels
                                                                                  waste                    resources
                                capture             slaves
                                                             become                racist
             and                show     feelings         of
                                                                                            hatred
                        jealousy
                                                                                depression
                                                    suspicion
    cruelty
                                                                                                                dishonesty
                              and                                        
                                                            arrogance


                                                BUT
If             humans             are                        just                                        monkeys
                 how                    did                we         reconstruct         buildings
                         end             genocides 
                                                                             declare               peace
                            restore                  rainforests
        discover                        sustainable             energy
                                                                                  save                    resources
                                free             slaves
                                                              become                multicultural
             and                show     feelings         of
                                                                                            love
                        admiration
                                                                                hope
                                                   trust
    kindness
                                                                                                                honesty
                              and                                          
‚Äč                                                            modesty?



                                    BUT    
        All                             of                    it            wouldn't                    matter
                    since
                                                        like monkeys
            Humans will
                                                                                                        eventually
                                        have                     to
                    sleep
                                                                                "The Big Sleep".

    This is so creative!! Spoken word poetry is so interesting because of the movement and weight of the words as being performed, but your poem is so unique because I can feel the movement and deeply understand the message without visually seeing you perform in a video. Very well done.
