Man is borne, bipedal and grounded
The fowls of the air, winged and airborne
Man tills the ground to be fed
The birds soar, feasting under the sun.
Man evolved, civilizations formed
He learnt to build, he learnt to destroy
Man strives as much to be a god
He forgets his beginnings as a boy.
Remember Icarus, dauntless but unwise
Went too close, never to fly again
Man should fill shoes his own size
Over-ambition is a mile away from been insane
