MAN

Man
Man who was made naked
And grew to know leaves could hide
And proceeded to pursue trees to be softer
In order to hide more and more of himself
And now thinks leaving some parts bare is a sin
Man!
Oh man!

II
Man
Man who initially fed on fruits
And was afraid of fire
Managed to conquer fire
And moulded the earth to cook with the fire
What tasted slimy and was found
In, on and beneath the earth
Man!
Man oh man!

III
Man
Man who needs needs today
But needs wants immediately after being blessed with needs
And has legs but craves fins
Has hands but craves wings
And has found ways of swimming

And flying like fishes and birds
Man!
Man oh man!

V

Man

Man; a harmless danger

Man, a fragile but cruel hunter
Man whose brains have nearly extincted fearful animals
Man whose heat has vanquished part of the sky
Man is a tiny earth to be feared

Man

Oh man!
