Feral Child

Feral Child

a feral child
reared by goats
wolves
or monkeys
will not know
what it is
to be
man

is it any wonder
that our toddlers
reared by the fools
of leaders or disciples
of a feeble church or state
never come
to understand
what it is
to be
man?

is it any wonder
the feral child
raised by wolves
monkeys
or goats
ignorant of its manhood
chooses
all it knows
for survival
which is living
according to the rules
of survival
within
its herd
tribe
or pack?

is it any wonder
this ecology
fabricated
through a necessarily 
subjugating
tightfisted 
but rickety
church and state
yields rules
for survival
in our thinking and behavior
mimicking monkeys
goats
and wolves
far more
than man?
