Inherent, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @Brianrrs37 on Twitter)

Once on video
I saw a cat
Save a toddler
From a dog

In another video
I saw an elephant
Pull her calf
Out of a bog

This idea
That we specifically
Are the only species
Capable of morality

Is a fallacy.
Acts of empathy
Come naturally

To many,
In our animal kingdom.
It isn’t handed down
From a guy in the clouds

It is DNA that allows
The adaptation
Of socialization
Making stronger bonds.
