Superiority

Baboons in Lake Nakuru, Kenya. © Santosh Saligram
“What is superiority?” asked the baboon.
“You tell me,” replied the other.
“What’s higher is superior,” answered the baboon.
“What’s higher?” asked the other.
“The one farther away from the basal, the ground,” said the baboon, composedly.
“Where’s the ground?” asked the other.
“On Earth, of course,” assured the baboon.
“What’s the top of Earth and what’s the bottom?” asked the other.
The baboon didn’t answer.  Nor did the other.

 

And thus they were the same.
