    Is that all we know
    Is that the sum total
    Of our social depth

    {you get me or I’ll get you}

    Is it?

    Is
    “ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE”
    The vision we wish to
    Actualize
    Is there pride
    In beating on a weaker kind

    Is there?

    When will we realize
    We’re bigger than that

    Is the brutality of nature
    The nature we profess to be
    BRUTAL
    In our quest for humanity

    Is
    “Abusing…
    Misusing…
    My cruelty to others”
    Using me

    Is that how it should be
    Low life(s) pushing up on me

    Would you agree

    Two wrongs
    Don’t make a (c)ock fight right
    When dominion over the yard
    Is never at stake

    It isn’t our yard, anyway.

    violence is never the answer...just a result of frustration. let us think before we act. then act on what is right.

    Deep very thought provoking piece!

    A popular cartoonist expressed this sentiment quite simply,"I has met the enemy and he is us!?" Thanks for always going a little deeper and speaking what is not only poetically painfully true but profound!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
