Subhuman Ethics

Now lo, the man contemptuous
With disagreements strenuous
Those of the past
Were lower caste
And he’s not disingenuous

For only he knows right and wrong
Alone, among the blighted throng
Yes, he knows more
Than folks before
And he can tell you all day long

He looks out over history
Finding humans quite blistery
And cannot ken
How, from such men
Came he – it’s quite the mystery
