        If you’d be wise, then first you must be kind
        Since it’s for partnership that we’re designed,
        And recognizing that we all are kin
        Is how our social order must begin;
        Whereas antagonism, hatred, strife
        Are the antitheses of civil life:

        Although it was at first the jungle’s law,
        Such animosity is now a flaw
        That our advance in wisdom must transcend
        Lest this experiment ignobly end.

        The Cosmos over eons has prepared
        The way for us and seems as if it’s cared
        For our success—how sad for us to fail
        When with a show of love we might prevail.
