SELNATISM

Like splashes of mud on a shirt,
To the world numerous problems cling.
And to entities other than himself,
Man attributes their sources:
God, satan, nature, circumstances, etc.

Strange though it may seem,
Most of the bad in our "Big Egg"
Are his handiwork! Who? Man!
Just like his tripartite nature,
Problems he creates in three basic ways:

Through his deliberate acts;
Through his mistakes;
Through his ignorance.

For our world to have the last laugh,
The above triplet he must beat.
This is SELNATISM!
