A species in its infancy--a living idiosyncrasy,
This 'naked ape' believes itself divine.
Assured of its supremacy--it
dreams of immortality,
The first words that it speaks--"This world is mine."
But the time has come for us to realise,
animal instincts we deeply despise--
Are far more civilised than humanity.
Mankind has lived to curse the day it climbed down from
But still we keep our heads held high whilst crawling on our knees.
I hope I never live to see the 'perfect' world you
Where ambition is the burden we shall carry to our graves.
We think that we are so superior--for in God's image we were
All other life we deem inferior--there to exploit, kill or enslave
No amount of remonstration could ever show a mind so
that it is not 'the be and end all.'
Into the future we race driven on by our greed,
Like rats in a maze we will never be
Science is the 'new-religion'--scaples slash dissecting truth and reason,
Behind locked doors where no-one sees.
evolution's one way street mankind pursues his dream,
Of a race conceived in test tubes with the same designer genes,
But like a
child who tries to run before it learns to crawl--
he'll go crying to his 'Mother' when he sees the cradle fall.
I am human--I was
made to be the ultimate machine,
With the power at my fingertips to realise my dream.
Homo-sapiens--the 'master-race,' Nature's
pride and joy,
Taking all the world will give me--what it won't I shall destroy.
In our hearts we yearn to be immortal--conquer all
sickness and disease,
Create a world where even death's not fatal--then we can shape our destinies.
A populace of plastic people
live genetically pre-programmed lives--and no-one
laughs and no-one cries.
Blinded by science the masses are duped and
By the faces that smile from their colour T.V.s.
They'll steal your dreams--remove them surgically (but leave you scars so
God is dead man has surpassed him.
Like children in our playground--we contrive such foolish games,
fail to see the consequence of suicidal aims.
No matter how we bend the rules there's no way we can win,
Not even pleading Ignorance
will vindicate our sins.
I am human--I was made to be the ultimate machine,
With the power at my fingertips to realise my
Homo-sapiens--the 'master-race,' Nature's pride and joy,
Taking all the world will give me--what it won't I shall
Mankind a babe-in-arms,
Believes he's come of age--
And reaches for the stars,
With one foot in the grave.
human--I was made to be the ultimate machine,
I am human--I have the power to realise my dream.
I am human--an automaton--a mindless
I am human--I am servant to the monsters I have made.
