The Apes are embarrassed by us.
The trees are leaving;
heading magnetic north;
Shade is gone.
The house is warm less;
I see birds laboring west
unclear and direction-less.
I see no humming bird
at the outside feeder
now for weeks.
Sorrow is a hoof-less stag,
the stunted bud on the flowerless tree,
the wind that weeps.
The bad air is Grey Green
'Beware of Smart Apes
Hope is the mutantcy
which may overcome Smart Ape Tendencies-
upon the answer
to the query.

|All of this is sad truth! Humans deemed themselves to be the most intelligent species on Earth....but how smart were we really???? We've destroyed so many beautiful natural treasures that can never be replaced....this one's a keeper, Lonnie....loved your phrasing

|in a way it consoles me
(but only in a way) that 99%
of all the species that ever inhabited this
planet are extinct, so we no doubt, smart
or not smart, shall have our turn to go
and probably it'll be sooner than we imagine
thank you, Lonnie, for prodding me awake
