Reasoning is evolutionarily quite new 
It wouldn't have helped in Krakau 
If you were a Jew 

It wouldn't have helped
If you were so brave 
As to question authority 
As to why you are a slave? 

It wouldn't have helped
If you were a witch 
Not one tiny bit of hair 
Not even a stitch 

It wouldn't have helped 
If you were stuck in Katrina 
Waiting on some help
From officials from FEMA 

It wouldn't have helped
If you were a Prisoner of War
For the guardsmen to have mercy
And open the door 

Or to a Native American
Looking at those really big boats 
Sailing in towards the shore

It wouldn't have helped 
If you were an "I Have a Dreamer" 
With Bull Connor's dogs teeth attached to your femur

Or simply a citizen that day In Nagasaki or Hiroshima

Will it help the bold and audacious young protesters in Hong Kong?
Singing a glorious international freedom song!
Or the patriotic George Floyd 
American and world-wide protest 
Against vigilante police 
Redemption throngs?

Yes reasoning this day 
I pray 
Has it evolved?

For it is many the questions

That need to be solved
