Origin

By Scott Bailey © 2018

So the soldier walks alone
The origin
Of the species
Is
Competition
Survival of the fittest
The strongest
The smartest

The origin
Of our success
Is cooperation
Working together
Against a goal

If
For a few measly coins
We forget the latter
And embrace the former
The species
Will find
Its end
