                    We are a work in progress, human beings,
                    With our contentious, dangerous disagreeings,
                    And we’ve the power to end the whole shebang
                    Unlike our kin with only tooth and fang.

                    How much abuse can this poor world endure
                    Until our wretched race may find a cure
                    For our most manifest insanity,
                    The rotten core of our humanity?

                    Can we evolve into a super race
                    Distinguished for our amity and grace
                    As saints and sages have exhorted us,
                    Or must our future be more ominous?

                        There is no way to live well by the sword;
                        It’s only peace and love that bring accord.
