On Being Human

Poem By Tony Downing

The problem
is fallibility
in a relevant world
that no longer trawls.

Lifting the lid
on base and bias
one can see
without too much
difficulty
why we slither
like the snake
to deceive.

The problem, scant
what you believe,
more to what extreme
you believe what you do.
