some say that man evolved

from something that crawled out of lakes
some sprouted wings and flew off
others hugged the ground like snakes
.
some roamed around in herds
while some perched solo in a tree
and some of them turned into you
while some turned into me
.
life grew more complicated
as our brains grew smarter cells
we developed scenes of heaven
we created our own hells
.
but maybe life was easier
before we strove for change
back then, when we were animals
life wasn't near as strange
.
we disguised our naked bodies
even when the weather warmed
we built our little cages
in the cities where we swarmed
.
we began to form a system
with a framework made of rules
to make our struggles easy
we invented many tools
.
we all turned into scientists
collecting useless facts
we built up nervous tension
and forgot how to relax
.
what used to be so simple
we devised to rearrange
back then, when we were animals
life wasn't near as strange
