A Glance in the Mirror

by Kevin T McEneaney

While humans are fabulous achievers,

we are gifted in how we make mistakes.

Even our bodies often betray us

with head colds, gastroenteritis,

not to mention flu, severe allergies,

heart attack, or host of other ailments.

We possess the worst nasal cavity

found in any animal or monkey.


Despite all this, we have arranged to sow

the globe with disgusting pollution. You

might be slightly correct if you think we

are not capable of being happy,

unless we feel we are superior

to Nature, or our common ancestor.
