nature has endowed us with genes
to pass on mutations that helped us
evolve from primitive hominoids
to our present-day form and
on to an unbelievable future

in early childhood we learn to compete
to study to enable us to better ourselves
compete with our peers
surpass them in life’s battle

survival of the fittest
has worked on this world
for several billion years
and will continue into
the foreseeable future

when we shall finally learn
if we are alone
in this expanding universe

barring an eccentric asteroid

editors note:

For those who do or don’t get evolved, it’s aliens or a great big rock. – mh
