MAN

Is not the world as it has always been;
Different people, weapons and scene?
We kill to eat and we eat to kill
And challenge the peaks of every hill.
Is it not to impress the lady fair
That we reach for greatness everywhere;
Flex our muscles and brag and skite;
Establish what we claim as right;
Grouping together in family tribes,
Claiming the land that serves our vibes?
As Earthlings all survive we must
Defend our kin in whom we trust.
And so we make a set of laws,
Which ensures the continuance of our wars.
