Praise Us

Oxytocin, the luv hormone, makes us more prosocial to Us and worse to everyone else.”

On an Adirondack pond,
In a summer camp for boys
From evangelical homes

Forty years ago,
A few of us teenagers
Who worked as camp counselors

Started jokingly praising
Each other: “Praise you.” “Praise you!”
We were told to cut it out.

Bonding is a wheel with spokes.
Yes, Ezekiel saw the wheel
Within the wheel, but beware: 

When you make a new inside,
You become the new outside.
