humans playing god

It’s a supposedly enduring trait

One that nature typically handles

(though the process unfolds rather slowly)

We hack and chop our ways and means

Stitching together pieces of incompatible parts

Suppressing and compromising

In the name of progress

Little thoughts given

To the proliferation of the underlying diseases

The more we meddle

The less good it does
