A sad soliloquy




Am I better off, superior?
For having been divine
in my origin—rather than
emerging from primeval brine?

Am I any better, wiser?
Am I kinder, more sweet,
knowing, which end is up
my head or my feet?

Judging by the way
we, the humans, act,
we are still all apes
(an indisputable fact).

They say the Lord in heaven
had a momentous plot:
He made us in His image.
And now I say: So what?

Well said. Karen

If we are made in god's image it gives cause to wonder. When I look in the mirror each morning and God's image stares back at me, he must be one ugly creator!

Interesting twist of sarcasm, but I get the point. We sometimes screw it up pretty bad, but there is also the other side of the story. When the light breaks through the darkness disappears.

I appreciate the philosophical perspective that you have shared via your verses here, Stan; and your wit and humor too. Love and peace,

Hi Stan, I'm laughing, not at you, but with you, for this write is right. And the ending leaves open a wide open question that none can really answer. Great one, Stan... thank you for sharing this...

In Spirit,

My dear cynical friend, of course we are superior to apes and all other creatures who are not made in the image of God. No other "animal" on this earth can ascend to the depths of depravity or the heights of sublime compassion availble to human kind. Consider Mother Teresa, Deitrich Bonhoffer who died in a Nazi concentration camp because he refused to leave his congregation and later refused to deny his faith. No ape can do that. No ape can write so eloquenty as you have, my friend, of their disappointment with their species. He made us in His image--what we do with that divine gift is up to us.

I Always Said Its 2009 And We're Still Living Like Bunch Of Animals!!

Can't Believe It Come Live in Los Angelese Sleazy Mexifornia...

As For Apes Listen To Hillary Clintons Laugh Sounds Like Female Frustrated Ape!

So what, indeed.
You speak to that eternal cynic within.
Thank you!
Well done.

We like to think we have come a long way, but have we really??
