The grays control the world.
Their wisdom and strength the pearl
they present before their tribe.
Wanting to not only survive but thrive.
So many desiring the same territory.
A place where fruits and nuts grow.
A place where water and shade knows
just the right boundaries.
We are all born animal.
Looking to each other to show
us what rules to follow.
What rules can be broken.
What not to eat.
How to hunt the forests deep.
How to defend our own.
Cultivating and grooming friendships.
As we study our closest relatives
Hidden in the rainforest groves.
We find something strangely similar.
They are our brothers not our cousins.
They take more than they need.
They fight and kill as they breed.
They see themselves as the top priority.
Murdering other monkeys for meat.
Killing the mother’s of babies to seek
more and more resources to spread.
To strip the forest bare, to be well fed.
Showing no remorse for their war against tribes.
For one family lives another dies.
Through the great apes maybe we can realize
the human experiment has been compromised
by the seed of greed our ancestors… feed.
