Pedigree, chum, it’s about origins.
It is in the genes whether can run fast.
Born thoroughbreds, from the breeding begins.
Bringing present attributes from the past.
But, overwhelmingly, we are mongrels.
And, no certainty in long lineage.
Love may have come along and breached the rules.
Blue-bloods, cross-breds, … more, in the heritage.
But, we’re all here, not just ‘cause we’ve survived.
So did, for long enough, our ancestors.
Primogenitors, themselves fit, alive.
Not only tribe lords that nature prefers.
Us masses increasingly in the race,
And we’ve got what’s been given, for first place.
