Scrambling across my basin sink
What is it that you must think.
Of this unnatural habitat
We bipedal anthropomorphs live at.
The arrogance you must perceive
Is but our bent to self-deceive
Ourselves and all who invade
Our omnipotent barricade.
Our divine right we must protect
Lest we admit to some defect.
You may rightly be contemptuous
Of our small world pretentious.
Another being will this way come -
A specie more adventuresome.
And in our domain it will supplant us
After an event calamitous.
