Your human qualities make me sad
A is for avarice
H for hypocrisy, so human
we believe we are different from you in
our specific sins;
certainty in times of doubt
surliness when a gentle touch is called for
a rude retort in place of silence.
S for selfishness, the saddest seed of
discontent, our backs to each other in
what should be a comfy bed.
