The Savages

The savages
are standing 'round the tree,
after killing the man
who planted it,
all clamoring for a pear,
all screaming for a share,
because, they say,
they've been oppressed.

The savages
will whine about their need,
with not the sense
to save the seed.

  1. Great prose and certainly sums up a lot of the problem!
