I often hear people say 'Nature is aggressive,
white of tooth, stained red in claw'.
I would agree with them more
were they looking less to obscure
their anger behind a false reasoning.
The human binary of 'You're wrong, I'm right'
is far harsher than nature could ever be.
We are at out most wrong
when we are dead and gone
and the living create arguments
over us which we cannot refute.
