And the Rise of the Hairy Ape
Natural selection, jungle law.
Some had a fairly decent run:
Neanderthals, to name but one.
All environmental changes.
Behold the hairy ape
But still how limited his range is.
For, while scratching on the ground one day
Some monkeys chose a walking stance
And why? To get a better grip of life.
Another leap! Advance Advance!
While moving in an upright gait
Our arms, of course, were free.
Oh, what a great wide world it was.
Goodbye to tail! Goodbye to tree!
It was a hand-to-mouth existence.
But things are never where they’re at.
For the development of fire for our personal use
Would certainly change all that!
Become extinct or grow much stronger.
