Survival - Poem by shimon weinroth

are we born with the knowledge of hiding,
do we know what we are hiding from,
we are taught to hide ourselves and things.
from the clear and open skies,

are we innocent by nature,
and only learn tricks of deciet and hiding,
from our next door neighbour,

or are we weaned on the milk
of suspicion, subterfuge and the hidden
fore warned is fore armed,

equip us with this knowledge,
the import of hiding and kept hidden,
tis a force of self-determinism

even the gods stay hidden,
why then condemn, men and woman kind
and put a moral quotient,
on survival
