Cain and Abel fought the bitter fight
Like baby eagles,sharks and all that bites
For parents stand aloof as if amused
By sibling killing sibling for their food
This may be the crime original
So common it may seem to be banal
Inside the heart of love lurk greed and hate
Genetics brings destruction as a fate
So hatred precedes love, if any grows
As dead egrets have not a claw to show.
Families have their scapegoats all will harm
No-one seems to notice wild alarm
So Cain was not unusual nor mad
Indeed he was a hero to his dad.
