Darwin`s Virus


 
go ahead
scratch your head
those on the outside
always think  
my changes  
are stoopid easy  
to make...
after all,
what wondrous  
pride they take
in the colossal success
of their current
skin-deep fake
 
yes
if I was a true Lion
I'd have  
torn our tangled  
roots asunder
ages ago
propelled by
pure self-centered
interest
survival of the fittest
in a place  
that means business
 
but hasn't  
Our Race
spent it's  
entire existence
asserting the difference?
 
Our gifts
include powers
of empathy,
sacrifice,
visualization
of a greater future
at the patient end  
of slowly returning
investments
 
if you think  
this is simple
you've been neglected
egregiously over-protected
fatally infected
with Darwin's Virus
take what you want
regardless  
of need
less Human
more beast
