It is truly astonishing. The Ape
advancing to where, and who, we are now.
Sort of evolutionary escape.
Which remains rather hard to explain how.
Eyes must have helped, to see dangers and hide.
Holding a weapon made with a sharp point.
Dug holes in the earth to trap prey inside.
Fire for warmth. Homes for cover. Living joint,
with others for mutual protection.
Planting, growing and animal rearing.
Surviving, overall, from infection.
Opportunities, plenty, appearing.
Less chance that predators decimate us.
And our better brains, the really big plus.
