A poem by Nils Ferlin that was difficult to translate, but it might work anyway.
I am a poor animal that lost its tail
like my cousin the peaceful chimpanzee.
My father Adam walked the groves of Eden
Like some unforgettable ape beast,
rather singular in his kind and relations,
an artifact that brought many questions to mind.
His eyes glowed as small as they were red.
His sex drive was strong , as was his talent to kill.
There was a shaggy, brown male gorilla,
a stone in the brain was his fall and fate.
But the female smiled, she was allowed a long life,
in the Book her name is Eve.
Our mother Eve was a beautiful tjinona
a small and slender female gorilla.
She bore Adam children and cracked nuts,
and learned black magic at the master's feet.
Time passed and Adam's children and sons
degenerated and invented prayers,
and invented social codes and police and laws
and made an end ( totally ) to the days of Paradise,
we became like ants in giant anthills
trampled by the spiked iron heels of distress.
You! the center of the Universe, as it is written
you questionmark unto yourself and life,
you mustardseed on the fields of the world
nurtured by decay and the bleeding.
you human, the manifestation
of He who lives in faith and religion.
In the end, all that you are, you king of Earth,
despite your poets' incense and honey,
is just a poor and decadent ape
who lost both his peace of mind and its tail.
