Courage is timing
Mankind with desire to
procreate for brilliance

None so platonic
to accentuate lineage
of smart progeny

Tutelage selfishly
guarded against toxic moves
Harmony preserved

For Sumana's at PU's Midweek Motif  -  courage

  8. As humans our standards of perfection for procreation are flawed. Other lesser creatures (which of course is not the case except in our eyes) think differently and survival of offspring is more important than having a trophy partner that everyone will envy us for. Great post Hank.
