Praying Mantis

When Evolution
concocted mankind
she must have been
mad
SO mad

Mad at the planet
for not putting out the garbage?
Mad at god
for mansplaining?

Mad –
she must have been

Temporary insanity
drug induced?
Hereditary madness
her genes to blame?

Evolution
must have been
when she cooked up mankind

Survival of the greediest
wrecking of the planet

Todays prompt at octpowrimo.com was Madness Reigns. It does. In too many places and too many ways.
