It's Not Just Us

I looked it up. It's not just us. Chimpanzees wage war
On each other. So do armies of wasps and ants.
All sorts of animals battle for mates. Adults kill
Children. Siblings will fight. Harmony's fleeting.
Conflict is constant. Life is a terrible thing.

The great philosopher Caid Ali said that genocide is in our blood. Look at our history: Us Sapiens are the only homonids around because we killed the rest.

Not many animals exist with only one species living. Straight out the womb we killed our siblings.

violence is everywhere
in the Bible, for instance, it's full of crimes, murders, battles, people die by thousands all the time for no apparent reasons..even if technology grows, I fear violence won't disappear.
