On The Occasion Of A Computer Program Beating Two Grandmasters At Chess

We are lower life-forms.
We’re second rate!
It’s evolution baby
As of this date

We’ve created a monster
We’ve been outclassed.
We’ll never catch up with it now
It’s moving fast.

We’ve lost our place on the food chain.
Now we’re number two.
He’s eaten all you can give him
Now he’s after you.

We are lower life-forms.
We can’t compete!
We got a one-way ticket now
Down a losing street.

We are lower life forms.
There is no escape.
We’re just a jungle animal now
A stupid ape.

Oh we’ve created a beauty
A gleaming machine.
We don’t need to think anymore.
We gave away that scene.

We are lower life forms.
We can’t follow this act!
We’ve been surpassed by the work of our hands
And that’s a fact.

We are lower life forms
We can’t play in this game
We’re a has-been species you know
Ain’t that a shame?
AIN’T THAT A SHAME!
