How we evolved

by Kevin T McEneaney

All life relies on cooperation,

whether intimate or more social forms.

Cooperating defines history;

it will project the future of mankind.

Through cooperation we invented

agriculture, cities, science, the arts.

We are now victims of our success

as our population overwhelms the earth.

Cooperation is the solution

to the multiple problems we now face.

This week we celebrate our families

and give thanks for our survival on earth.

Great cooperation will solve our problems.

Retro-fascism destroys empathy.
