Homo gramineae

about

Instead of Homo sapiens, I wonder if grasses are so important to us we should be named after them instead.

In botany, the Grass family is now known as Poaceae, though formerly is was called Gramineae which I though made for a catchier title, even though it is now technically incorrect. Learn botany from a good book, not from me ...

lyrics

We are made of grasses
Protein and starch

Corn-barley-rice-millet-wheat-rye-oats-pasture

We are made of grasses

Poaceae

We inflict our false lawns
And fake prairies
Humbled herds
And mono-cultivation
