Solidarity Trap

Togetherness and similarity
Surely true faiths of earnest feelers
Shoes worn, other-wiser results
Be still, mockingbird
Clamors may induce forgetting

Layered onions might mix with cloved garlic
But only after knife and fire application
Unstirred, unfried senses
Taste apple contra smell

Groups think for themselves
A people person incorporated
Ready to act common and whole
Reciprocal exchanges identify interest
Contract ink blots compound pages

Rote pledged allegiances
Make secular the pious
And yet patterns and
Heuristics compel and enact
According to social ologies

Human scorners
Raised above wolves
To reach into the past
And save Remus
From that Canaanite fate
Alit by the claim
That wishes make a family
