Power of Speech

“This is the skeleton of a reptile excavated by archaelogists,” explained the zoology teacher, “the mystery that remains unresolved is the functions of its odd-shaped mouth.”

“A mouth is used to catch the prey, clean, sense the way ahead, bite or eat,” opined a Smart Alec student, “reptiles are not known to ruminate.”

“Power of speech is needed to hurt or humiliate others, as we humans often do. Thankfully, the reptiles just let others be.”
