Poetry – A smile

A Smile


A smile is much more than you think;

A smile is a snarl,

An act of aggression

Transformed into a greeting,

A sign of pleasure,

A welcome.

So human

To bare your teeth,

So duplicitous;

A disguise of true intent.

A smile

Reveals the true nature of humans;

Malevolent chimps,

Whose inclination

Is to control,

To intimidate

And destroy.

We love violence

And cruelty.

We do it with a smile.
