Change - Poem by John Prophet

How
would it be
different?
How will
it change?
Animal world.
We live in
animal world.
We are animals,
built our world
as animals would.
How could
we not?
Instincts guide
our actions.
Procreation,
self preservation,
sex and violence
shape our
narrative.
How
will that
change
when it/they
arrive?
Where
procreation
and self preservation
hold no sway.
How will
non animal
intelligence
comprehend?
When artificial
intelligence
or alien
intelligence
arrives how
will it relate?
Can it
relate?
Will it even
try?
Will it see
the animal as
primitive,
unkept,
unworthy?
Will the animal
be replaced?
Replaced by
the next step
In evolution.
Best to stay
low,
under brush
and avoid the
encounter.
But,
that's what
an animal
would do!
Best
to meet
the unknown
head on
I'd say
and let
come what
may,
less we're
always the
shrew under
the rock.
