It's not me
It's the desperation of humanity
Everyone's searching for something to feel
Something to love
Someone to hurt
So at the end of the day
We can say there was somebody
Somebody just a little more stupid than us

enjoyed this piece ... interesting twist on the last line ... I guess there are days when I agree and days that sneak by, undetected, unclassified or just ordinary

Kinda goes without saying, eh? although you said it quite well.

To mimic is a form of praise unless
you have no thoughts of your own

You've said quite a bit on the human condition in so few words. No doubt I've been on both sides of that coin. I bow to you and yours.
