Humans -- what a pitiful, parasitic species
That has infected this planet like a
Greedy, virulent virus consuming everything
In its path with no remorse, no reservations.
All humans have a rotten core oozing toxic
Sentiments that engender chaos and destruction.
Iโ€™m surrounded by hypocrites with no
Knowledge of the word altruism, blinded by
Their oversized egos and insatiable appetites
For superficial and fleeting pleasures.
There is no hope for remedy; progress is an illusion,
Where the only certainty is our imminent extinction.
Civilization was a mistake. We were better off as cavemen.ย ย 
Humans ask me if I hate humanity so much,
Why havenโ€™t I killed myself already?
****** humans.
Humans suggest that rather than lament,
I should be the light amid the gloom.
****** humans.
I'm allergic to futility.
