Essential irrelevance

What size intelligence?

Tyrannosaurus Rex-gigantic,

A hundred-forty million orbits

Planet Earth's almighty terrorist,

And yet did not have a clue

How to not become extinct?
Creepy crawly cockroach-small
With dinosaurs cavorted
In hide-and-seek
As smilingly
As it assimilates our pesticides?

Homo sapiens narcistic-oversized

In diapers barely hiding mooning bums,

A mere two million runs

Around the sun
And yet already
Planet Earth's almighty terrorist
On the brink
Of nuclear self-genocide?
