We're all the 1%

We think ourselves higher than all else
yet we don't have the patience of trees,
or the loyalty of a dog.
We don't have the mercy of water
or the tolerance of great spaces,
we don't have the freedom of the wind,
in our greed, we try to hoard the sun
and confine the stars to our prisons. 


All this talk of who's the 99% who's the 1%
I'm tired of playing the blame game and
getting up on toy horses and pointing fingers
when we are barely the Earth's 1%
