Bones

11 Apr
primates are at it again
clubbing
the men, women, the children and seniors
the siesta et television prime time bloody bodies of Ukraine
like the ape scene from kubrick's 2001 space odyssey
the alien monolith black slab didn't work
but for fur to clothes
big-brained toolmaker ape-man

fire
the bone club
sharp flint
knife
spear
bow and arrow
sword
powder
the cannon
rifle
tank
chlorine gas
bw
the airplane, the submarine, the jet
the v2 rocket
the missile
a bomb
plutonium
h bomb
AI
hypersonic missiles
nuke-tipped cruise missiles

with tools

the primate beast button-fingers terracide

no embryonic star-baby

planet earth, a boneyard













3.5 10/10
