The New N Word
All move freely
All have purpose
Until dealt with
Chooses not a destiny
Relying instead on nature's digestion
Its need to purge on occasion
Allowing gaseous release at times
Forging its evolution
Becoming either challenging obstacle
Or opportunity for progress
Why must some obviate such normalcy
Forever choosing square pegs
To fit round hole resistance
At any cost
Accusing simple physics as impediment?
We work at defying life's unfolding
Often insisting dark
Any and all organicity aside
We are sentient beings
With comforts to protect
Supremacy to uphold
And the natural order of things?
The phenomena often delivering
Of things to come?
Lest we forget
In spite of an insidious new N word
A 21st century conceived discrimination
Nature knows not enslavement
