Phase Transition

Humanity is moving
through a
dangerous
phase,
transition.

Animal instincts
intact,
driving things
forward.

The animal can
take us only

Procreation,
self preservation
now
impeding the way.

Sex and violence,
the endocrine
ruling the day,
our lives.

Hormone drench,
clouding intellect,
logic,
will slows things,
from here
takes us down.

Intelligence,
free
of such
distractions
moves
things along.

Transitioning
to the future
a dangerous task.
