The Human Flaw: Compilation 09/10/2022

The birds and bees will often blunder when they think of who will win
Foisting their ideas on others like the ants fall sadly thin
The difference between these three bugs is multiformed yet luminous
For they are species not alike and form relations not like us
In their hovel they work together for the good of all the group
Humans work for just themselves in one big, selfish endless loop.

I don’t know if this is true or not but when thinking of one it seemed like that is where my head kept going.

So, here is mine…

After reading some of the other entries and commenting I came up with this saying (in response to this)

Don’t expect to find that which rarely exists
