April 20, 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

            GUILTY


Humans                                are                        just                                        monkeys
     With                        books                 and              a Bachelors in     philosophy
        Who            think they            are                 so                                    wise
                    since                                    they                             said

                                    EXISTS


Humans                                are                        just                                        monkeys
     With                                    automatic guns             and                       flags
               Who think                    they are              so                    patriotic

                                                                             declare                 wars

                                                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    
                        Would                         it                 all            matter
      would                                    it all        have                    no             purpose
                    would it             all                        be             for         NOTHING
          if                humans                            like            you                            
                and me
                                                      act                        humanely inhumane?
                        Are                        we                doomed
                                forever
                                                        and ever
                                                                                            and ever...
                                   ...
                                                                    ...or not?


                        BUT
                            at             the            end                 of the            day
                                                        like monkeys
            humans will
                                                                                                        eventually
                                        have                     to
                    sleep
                                                                                "The Big Sleep".

    This is amazing!! I love how it's formatted; it seems really chaotic(which it is, in a good way) but is also so easy to read. This poem has a great feel to it.
