Darwin's Dream Poem by Howard Camner


The only two species that murder their own
are man and monkey
and monkey only does it
because he imitates man

    AGAIN, PH is giving this poem the wrong name after comments about this poem. hmmm?
    i'm not sure how accurate this poem is. who is imitating whom? and i think other species murder each other; i'm pretty sure of it. but maybe they don't call it murder. at least this gave me something to ponder a bit.
    thanks for sharing. :) bri (Report) Reply
