I have heard of so many horrors

Of siblings killing each other

Fathers raping their daughters

Of mothers killing their children

And I often wonder what

Kind of grotesquely

Abstract reasoning

Perpetrate  these acts

Where does so much hate stem from

Are we all capable of the unthinkable

So inconceivable to a rational mind

Have we not then matured to

Humans, thinking rational beings

Or have we become worse than the

Those we condemn as animals
