What Virtue!

What virtue, I wonder, can truly distinguish us
as human beings, the supposed pinnacle of creation!
Perhaps the vices unique to our kind, instead,
form the borderline between humans and the rest!

Shall we consider the life of some astray dogs,
living in a pack on the street across my room,
either busy sniffing around for food and sex
or barking in tandem to set up precedence?

Perhaps, we should not, for the truth is often hard
and painful to see, although it lies too obvious.
