#348 of 365 – “worthy”



lets gather some trees up

and build us a fort

pillage our neighbors

and hunt them for sport

lets swear off conversation

wear our weapons out loud

shatter some lives

like glass in a crowd

lets bury our books

and hoard all of our food

spill out our morals

till we’re empty and crude

lets live only by doctrines

that tell us to kill

as if homicide and genocide

were solely God’s will


is this who we are

since we walked from the caves

has our evolution fallen

into permanent malaise

or is there something more

inside of us worthy of praise?
