Homo Sapiens

In Sapiens, Yuval describes
with witty genius
the rise of Homo Sapiens
from clueless ape
to us.

He says we rose so far so fast
Because we learned one skill;
The practice of believing in
Something that wasn’t real.

My problem when I look at us
is how to find the will
to believe in Homo Sapiens
when the ape is with us still.
