The cradle of civilization, as we know, lies in Africa.
None of them could find his way past the bottleneck of evolution. And then Homo sapiens. As Homo erectus and Homo neanderthalensis before him, he left Africa but only he spread out over every continent. And amazingly enough, all peoples who found a new home outside Africa are said to have descended from a single individual female.
For these revelations, we bow before the achievements of the anthropologists.
Ready set go
six of one and
half-upright of another
an erect gait at last his own corridor
to further rooms contained in whatever a skullspace can hold
Stand and walk is what the human’s to do and in sleep
he’s to lie down and set the course of time and mind
The human stood up and walked
armed with nothing but his brain
he fought his way through and set off
The human brain has in the meantime
taken on an amazing shape
has mutated to superweapon,
its favored prey being
(as is only natural for humans)
its own species.
