A: Do you know?

You humans are a strange breed.
You take all you want,
and more than you need.
You humans are a strange breed.
You wait for the word,
that validates 'absurd'.
You seek 'E' for effort,
even when you don't work.
You humans are a strange breed.
You take from your poor,
until they concede.
Then wait as you beckon,
to supplement the greed.
You humans are a strange breed.
With stark expectations,
at the top of your chain,
you deny life's true purpose,
to love through the pain.
You humans are strange breed.
You slice those around you,
and watch as they bleed.
You care where you come from,
but not where you'll be.
You humans are a strange breed.
You worry 'bout tomorrow,
Yet, waste your today.
You wallow in sorrow,
self-pity, and hate.
You humans are a strange breed.
You contemplate God, the universe, and such.
Yet, your blatant contradictions,
are alien to us.
You humans are a strange breed.
Your conceptions of God,
although He exists,
is not what you think,
but more what you've missed.
You humans are a strange breed.
You take what you want,
rebuke what you need.
Your time is now short!
You've not what we need.
