Go back far enough in my tree, and find
Two apes. Darwin, a clearly bright fellow,
Wrote so. I'm glad! He enlightened my mind!
Now, on meeting the animals, I know
Them as kin. I feel more at home on Earth.
As their kin, I now respect myself more,
For each species has its own special worth.
I feel more linked with what life is all for.
The Bible's overflowing with morals;
Overall, they've not worked well. Cruelty
And misjudgment are not lacking at all,
Both to animals and humanity.
Who wants to be this unique creation?
Should I, to bear the image of this God?
May I belong to the congregation
Of kindred apes, like two peas in a pod!
Yes, I do admit that stained-glass windows,
Lit by the morning sun, are inspiring.
It's fine when your voice, turning liquid, flows
Along with hymns the congregation sings,
And the quiet spells help you meditate.
But still, there is this other truth so dear:
I and all animals are kin. It's great
To respect all as worthy to revere!
