An icon like Burj Khalifa
Stands straight and tall.
The Great Wall of China
Runs straight and even.
The sides of the Giza
Are symmetrical blocks of stone.
Every conception of man
Is geometrical and uniform.

But who made straight right?
Nature certainly didn’t.
Horizons curve beyond sight,
And mountains rise erratic.
Duck feet are webbed.
Plants hang flaccidly.
Jagged tides flow and ebb.
Rains fall passively.

Who made straight right?
A race called Homo Sapiens.
