    Humanity not brained to do the job as all warnings have fallen on deaf ears.
    Got this completely and well said Rik (said? Needs to be shouted).

      Thanks Dave it's a known fact that some listen to reason only when it's yelled at them

        You're after my own heart with this one. I sometimes wonder if our brains have completed their evolutionary process, or whether we have a few million years to go yet. Perhaps A.I. will beat us to it. Great write, and a definite fav!

          Thanks Bella. The race is on! AI appears to have some advantages that we have to compensate for. Perhaps creativity is our niche.

            Wow, this came up "spontaneously"?!?! I mean the images you convey and your diction is so on point in this poem. I agree with the message, the sort of conformity many of us have a tendency to follow because of society, which is becoming progressively malign. I mean this brought me back to Mark Twain's essay "Corn-Pone Opinions," which if you haven't already, I totally suggest. Bravo.

              Thanks Rocky. That is so nice of you to say so. I will go to Mark Twain and refresh his voice in my head and meet "Corn-Pone Opinions" for the first time.
