We Stupid Apes

We stupid apes
With reckless japes
The world undone
At point of gun

Where is the sense of family
To mitigate the fear of tragedy?

We stupid apes
With planned escapes
Those left behind
Bereft and blind

Where is the group mentality
To combat the pull of gravity?

We stupid apes
With billowed capes
The egos fly
And creatures die

Where is the humble mindfulness
To build a space of peacefulness?

We stupid apes
With abstract shapes
Creating art
To take apart

Where is the great ambition
To find the best rendition?

We stupid apes
Who endless traipse
The road is long
We sing our song

Here is the last reality
To give us true causality.
