"La Plaisanterie Cruelle"
(The Cruel Joke)

We think,
therefore we are in the driver's seat.
Such hubris
in the face of Nature.
wields the whip and drives
the hard bargain of survival.

is a cocktail
of collusion and collision.
dance a tango
below the surface of our awareness
where DNA hijacks the conscious mind
and emotion overrides intellect
leaving us helpless,
at the mercy of our genitals
which conduct a "relationship"
with another set of genitals
in service
to the propagation of the species
which we chooose to label
