Social animals

That’s us

Can’t live alone

For long

Hard wired

In our genes


An illusion

A new one

Brought to you

By the automobile

Gadgets of all kind

And language

Gotta love it

Gives the impression

What you say

Has any attachment

To reality

I am this

I am that

I look at you

Declaring demanding

Stating knowing

And I say


Who are you

An independent

In human clothing

You insist

I deny

You insist louder

OK then be

Who you want

To be

There are others

Out here

Worth talking to
