Survival of the Gratefullest

We want the world to be good
Because it helps us persuade
Each other to be good, or
At least we feel sure it will.

Anyone claiming
The world is wicked
Could be seeking an excuse

To be wicked, you ingrate.
Be grateful. The world is kind.
Be social. Behave yourself.

Stay away from metaphors
Red in tooth or claw.
Trust us, you’ll be happier.
Doubt, and we’ll get nastier.
