Ninety-Eight Percent

98% of our genes are shared with chimpanzees.
We have polluted 98% of the world.
Dogs are bored 98% of the time.
Nearly 98% of life is mechanical.
More than 98% of us are lost in the plot.
And parrots think,
and parrots mope.

O praise
the 98% of thinking animals with the integrity
not to pray or hope.

Really enjoyed this piece! Incredibly provocative and interesting, not at all the 'usual' stuff I've been seeing of late. It's intelligent, and it bursts with originality. Such a nice thing, truly. Take care, T.
