Before We Exalted Ouselves

Before air became gas,
And water waste;
Before light became lasers,
And fireworks cannons;
Before cars got wings,
And trucks got tracks;
Before rafts were raiding ships,
And we breathed underwater;
Before sticks were arrows and spears,
And Empires rose and fell,
Rose and fell,
Before we exalted ouselves,
A femur crushed Cro magnon's skull.
It's a marvel
That any of us
Are here
At all.
