I'm Homo, known as Sapiens.  I'm tough.
I've weapons that can kill you.  And
– I've stuff.

I've learned to write.   I've read my fill of books.
I've got my ins with all the local crooks.

So who can touch me?  Yes, there's science, art
But see?  I'm where I am, because – I'm smart.

Wisdom?  Well, although my name is "Wise",
You're better off with smartness
– and with lies.

For truth is well and good, but lies can make
You rich.  That's where it's at.  The rest is fake.
