     Whoever thought to call us “humankind”
     Was likely unobservant, dense or blind
     Or was toward absurdity inclined,
     Having an oxymoron in his mind.

     But that’s too harsh, for we were first designed
     For Paradise and with good grace may find
     Our way again and thence be realigned
     To Kindness, where our souls may be enshrined.
