A Caution To Everybody

Consider the auk;
Becoming extinct because he forgot how to fly, and could only walk.
Consider man, who may well become extinct
Because he forgot how to walk and learned how to fly before he thinked.

    And the Devil reading this winked
    Realizing this aspect God had not thinked
    And matters so far linked
    Suggests mankind is on the brink....
