That Us Humans Are Tribal - Poem by Francis Duggan

That us humans are tribal might seem fair to say
And many tribal groups within every community it does seem this way
The tribe-less nowadays are becoming more rare
And to recognize this one need not to be too aware
All over the World there are tribes everywhere
Millions of small tribal groups in the big World out there
And when tribes go to war the price is always huge to pay
Many injured and dying in tribal wars every day
In every town there is always competition when the tribes do meet
In sports there is always rivalry when local clubs for honor compete
The winners do always have the right to brag
And their fans sing the club song as they wave the club flag
Most of us humans are tribal and on saying that the tribe-less are few
Is not telling you anything that is new.
