EVOLUTION
John Messenger

.

4.2 million years ago
you and me lived in trees,
free from fear
of the wild and hungry beast.

Until the trees fell.

And no amount of swinging could save us
from the things that kill.

So…

It was stand up
or die.

And we rose to the challenge
and ran.

Now
the beast is inside.
And there is no swinging on the branches
of a world without war
anymore.

Now
the beast is our mind,

So…

It is be still
or die.
