If the chimpanzees were given their chance
To come out of the barrel
And leave their mark on this world
The way it is today
To lead the nations
Would they be able to find common ground?
Communicate through their differences
and recognize the whole is greater than the sum of the parts?
Find a way to love one another
regardless of affiliation or personal views?
Would they whine about trivial “hardships” that seem petty?
Or understand and empathize with those around the world that are TRULY suffering?
Would they ignore others’ pain as long as it didn’t affect them
in the ultimate display of selfishness?
Even if their penchant for flinging their own feces is too great for cessasion
Could they possibly screw this planet up any more than humans?
I do not believe so
It’s time for the chimpanzees to have their chance
