The savages we descended from; we pretend they weren’t us…
We think we are different.
This thing we call civility is questionable, at least.
Why are we so offended at our heritage?
Look how far we’ve grown.
“How tall we are, we’ve learned so much!”
Why the shame? Why pretend?
Given what they were dealing with, I can’t say that I’d have done anything better or different…
