An Evolutionary Coup

We are caught in the mires
of an evolutionary coup

We have confronted Nature
as superior beings
boasting about our evolution 
above animalistic instinct

And the most learned among Us
have perpetuated
this totalitarian meme
ever since
by bragging ad nauseam 
that this gift also means
We own
the planet that birthed Us.
