CRUEL ORDER
(9/17/18)

we are
a race
of murderous
competitors

cannibals

savages

inflictors
of unnecessary
torture

something
biological
drives us
to be better
than our fellow
humans

then
to belittle

to destroy
them

societies
were created
to protect us
from ourselves

religions

legal systems

attempting
to keep us
in check

but when
the viscera
take control

we may
either get
to a point
where we don't
consider
the consequences

or to
a point
where we
just don't
care about
them

the only
truly humane
individual

seems to be
one

in isolation
