Poem: Who Are We?/Put Your Finger In The Dike

I almost always believe otherwise,
But on a bad news day,
It's like we're not all in this together,
That we are just the latest edition
Of a complex species
Drawn together tenuously
In a social order
That masks our genetic disposition
To competition and selfishness
And puts the lie to any notion
Of compassion, altruism, and love.
