Walk Upright, Neanderthal

Hobble left and right oh stupid monkey, oh Neanderthal,
Over time you’ll learn to drop that stick you call a tool;
Meander to the wishing well and look down at your ugly face;
Obviously you need to see what you’ll look like just beyond today.
So learn to use your fingers too and work out all those problems;
And watch your head grow oh so stronger making your life that much longer.
Pick up all those heavy rocks and cast them into darkened caves;
Involve the other monkeys too and they can come along with you.
Escort your kin down Darwin’s path, this ought to set things straight;
No matter what you do from here, you’re going to seal your fate.
