Default Which Real

Age sees though most of lifeís most solid givens.
Is it unseemly to notice that animal nature rules?
Not long out of the jungle, humane rules are riven.

Contemplating humanity brings no peace of mind.
Looking closely it is clear that evil deeds control.
Knowing it canít be changed, old leaves it behind.

But no matter, the species continues to lie to itself.
It canít face what it has always been and will be.
Due to all the hateful depravity, leave it on the shelf.
