Those in the know know we're 98% chimp or bonobo
Listen

Those in the know know

we’re 98% chimp or bonobo

 

then again, we’re 90% cat

stretch and relax with that

 

and catch this on a stick I’m about to lob

we are 84% dog

 

not to mention 75% mouse

awkward when they want to share the house

 

in fact we’re 69% platypus

who’d have thought that of us?

 

consider also what those little flying flecks imply:

the buzz is we’re 60% fruit fly

 

alarming with this disarming charmer:

we could be 50% banana

 

so welcome to the franchise of a wider fraternity:

at least a quarter of us is tree

 

and nothing can be dismissed as inferior

seeing as we’re at least 3% bacteria

 

by this reckoning, it’s challenging but true:

whoever you are I’m 99.9% you.
