If humans, a product of natural selection?
It means if it ends with human extinction
Another species ready to take over
Traces of humanity lost forever
Earth has existed for 4.543 billion years
Man has existed for just 200,000 years
Dinosaurs, mammoths all lost to selection
Of course aided by hunting and civilization
Still it is survival for the fittest, natural selection
An ecosystem needs a dominant species
If humanity were to roll the extinction dice
What species would be ready to replace
Be dominant take over what was left by our race
Slowly erase our structures leave no trace
Will the race find ruins, cars and residents?
Wonder what was the intention
For all the building and construction
Or would it be just a primitive species
That right now lives in the deep seas
Where was humanity before 200,000 years?
Or when the dinosaur comet wiped 70% of life?
Does that means our replacement
May be living just be in existence
Not an excuse to poach and purge
The power we enjoy experience surge
If another species is to evolve
We still can’t fully explain our origin
However everyone thinks of the end
What if natural selection happened?
Our extinction life as we know it threatened
A countdown to the last humanity decade
What species would it be?
We have spent years looking into space
While out of earth evolved our race
If evolution happened again
Would we make the list again
The list authored by natural selection
