on 0 Comments

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?

where someone somehow was taken advantage of by someone else?

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
