A Rooting Interest

A curse of being human
Is that your body’s built
To take a rooting interest,

To choose sides, find sides to choose,
Attend to feuds, politics,
Gossip, and family disputes.

Even among your own thoughts
You stage imagined debates.
You seethe quietly. Just wait.

You do. You even choose sides
On whether and why you choose.
You choose the right side, don’t you?

Or you choose the secret side,
The side secretly correct.
Think, Hah! They’ll never suspect.
