Skin is wearing thin
Homo sapiens have out grown their use. Billions
Long in the tooth but not sharp at all
They snarl at each other
As they queue in the supermarket
For the bargains.
Humans defame the dignity.
Of the wild animals
They abuse, flay alive, eat.
Monkeys, lions, gazelle.
Any living thing
Is worth more.
Homo sapiens have no shame
They seek to inflame each other
By their diseased behaviour
Discourage the pale decencies
Of life. Their stupidity enrages me.
They spit, fart, masturbate.
Massacre the innocents
Delight in petty conquests
Full of greed and cowardice
In their refusal to welcome risk
Boast in their obesity
Are terrified of death
Admire their own reflections in glass or earth;
Never sink into a sunset nor rise to a sunrise
Do not read the signs or signals of our lives.
They laugh mockinglyly at children's innocence,
Condemn the naive, the gentle, the forgetful, the weak.
Have no awareness
Of all the misplaced series of broken, tender things
That make life what it is.
