"That man is the superior animal." We are the superior animal? In what
sense? This could be interpreted into that we are superior intellectually
or we are more of a beast...

I believe what the poem might be suggesting is the human assumption that
we're superior to everyone. Every human race believes there superior to the
others humans believe they're superior to the animals. But in almost all
cases we fall back on primitive insticts, fight or flight. Maybe we're just
fooling ourselves by thinking we're superior, we supposedly have the
ability to reason above that of animals but we so often fall back on
primitive behavior.

Are these not just the musings of an old mind bemoaning mankind and
implying his own detachment from such criticism?

We are a untrustworthy race. I cant wait till we learn that we our going to
evolve into something great. One great thinker of frequency & vanity
(shape) will no longer matter!! are we the weakest link...
