To be Human

Sunnis bomb their Shiite neighbors.
White cops shoot down unarmed blacks.
Tutsis hack at Hutus with machetes.
Palestinians are caged by European Jews.
Buddhists murder Burmese Muslims.
Tribalism's everywhere, proving we're
The same.

A horrendous truth about humanity. You've penned it precisely.

The list goes on, drawing attention to tribalism and questioning to be human, an uncomfortable read, but the truth is there.
