Monkeys Fighting

Over dirt,
Over imaginary boundaries,
They fight and bite
One another
And others
Who
Were simply just there.

These monkeys
Known no better
Beyond
Their primitive brains and ways.
Cultured from the beginning
To fight, bite, kick, and spit.

One picks up a stone
Another picks up a stick;
Arguing, yelling, screaming —
Competing over who has the stronger
Weapon.

It’s sad…
They miss their true
Opportunity.
To take those items,
These tools,
And together
Rebuild the world
They have broken.

But, they won’t —
They can’t. You see
They are primitive
Monkeys.

With their stones and sticks
They will keep on
Fighting, biting, kicking, and screaming
Over silly things that
Monkeys
Fight over.

Like:
Imaginary lines
Imaginary identities
Imaginary gods and faiths
Imaginary…

Around and around
They will go —
Monkeys killing monkeys
Until
Everything and everyone
Is broken
Too.

We believe ourselves to be the gods of this world; the rulers of all that is land and sea. That this planet has infinite resources, and can always adapt to our destructive ways. While not everyone is so forthcoming to war and hate, there are enough that apply these destructive ways; ultimately, hurting themselves and everyone in between.
