humanity i love you

(Dear Reader-If you are looking for an analysis of the humanity i love you poem, it follows the poem)

e.e.cummings

Humanity i love you because you would rather black the boots of success than enquire whose soul dangles from his watch-chain which would be embarrassing for both 

parties and because you
unflinchingly applaud all
songs containing the words country home and
mother when sung at the old howard

Humanity i love you because
when you’re hard up you pawn your
intelligence to buy a drink and when
you’re flush pride keeps

you from the pawn shops and
because you are continually committing
nuisances but more
especially in your own house

Humanity i love you because you
are perpetually putting the secret of
life in your pants and forgetting
it’s there and sitting down

on it
and because you are
forever making poems in the lap
of death Humanity

i hate you

I offer this as possibly the best poem ever written. Its inner meaning is terribly deep and although it was written many decades ago, it reflects the American condition of present times. A perfect example of the theme of this poem is Monsanto.  This company has made a tremendous fortune from the poisoning and genetic rape of the entire ecosystem of the planet earth and all its plants, animals and peoples...”would rather black the boots of success than enquire whose soul dangles from his watch-chain”.  Dr. Joseph Mengele… you too.  

How callous some of us can be, how sociopathic, how psychopathic…madness married to technology.  Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely…just because so many “would rather black the boots of success than enquire…”  See where that leads?
