cavemen and dinosaurs! (LOL) K thanks much *kisses*

I feel like this poem is being taken at face value when it actually sjould
not be. This poem is a mtaphor for times when people, economic entities and
even governments create problems in society, i.e. they create a mess,and
then they point fingers and blame everyone but themselves.

Also, I think the poem speaks to the concept of judging yourself before you
judge others. Often times we are quick to point out the short comings of
others while failing to recognize the same faults/ shortcomings in our own
