Accepting Extinction

Like all animals, we had to strive,
And intelligence helped us to thrive;
Now we’ve played our short part:
It’s true, we were smart,
But not smart enough to survive.

We learned a lot during our climb,
Since first we crawled out of the slime;
Now it seems, reader friend,
That accepting our end
Is the main lesson for our time.
