Thoughts v Instinct

The Great Apes are
much cleverer than
we took them for
They didn’t get where
they are, for all these years
By not using the tools
we take for granted
And helping to allay
each others fears
Wading in a river
does need caution
A stick provides
a measurement and so
Gorillas are not stupid
that’s for certain
How deep the water is
they need to know
Others seemingly
use sticks to aid their gait
Walking sticks, Gorillas
need them too
Sticks that help support,
yes their capable of thought
And I wonder if they
wonder what we do?
