Entry 33 in the Mondo Awards end-of-the-year Inspire-us contest is a poem by a regular commenter at this site, yourstruly.
where and when did it begin?
on the plains of east africa in the middle pleistocene?
or was it only ten thousand or so years ago?
that first agrarian community?

or later yet?
with servitude of the many to the few?
and the true nature of said spirit?
the what makes you think you’re better than anyone else
since you are I, I am you, we are one
