We aren't so different from our long forgotten ancestors!

Did you ever stop and think where we spend our time?

When we go to bed at night to lay and close our eyes.

It may not be a real big place or even grandiose

Yet, still I drift way back in time to think of all disposed.

Those of the past called home their caves

A hole carved from the earth

Where they played and found repose from a hard day's work.

It's not so different from the past, you see, we all have caves

It may not be a rock formed shape or deeply etched from clay

Maybe its a one room pad, a skyscraper building's loft

Whatever you may say it is one should never scoff.

For where we need to lay our heads

The cave is called our house.

You make a very good point on this. Guess in a way we still live in a cave as such. We call them dwellings now, but just a modern day cave.

Be safe,
