The Lizard Brain

No morals, no ethics to protect you
From knee-jerk reactions, thoughts that ensue
Mindlessly acting, demands of the brain
Unconscious knowledge, the lizard brain

Thoughts not in your name, not of your creation
Unknowingly, the lizard part of your mind’s foundation
Originating from deep within the brain’s core
Knee-jerk reactions, mindlessness galore

Protecting oneself, from the lizard brain’s grasp
Ethics and morals, a shield to outlast
Awareness of self, conscious creation
A defense against the lizard brain’s temptation
