Who's Smarter - by Bob Atkinson

Who's Smarter
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson
we look upon ourselves as smart
we see our ancestors in dimmest darkness
we find old actions not sincerely made
with live scenarios broadly recreated

take, for instance, second guessing
of our environment, that breathing lesson
smoke, carbon, radiation multiplied
all because we're not satisfied

no, we're not on road to ruin
that's just stupid, not mass confusion
we're on the cusp of better things
we drive toward greatness, openings

openings of potential good
grand illusions catching moods
moods revolving ever changing
from top to bottom rearranging

here, right now, with open mind
do we, could we, straight paths find
toward production of useful goals
which fit humanity, reducing toil

only purpose of this tirade
lies in thought of progress made
sometimes progress hides itself
within old books on dusty shelves
