I Don'T Know Why - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

I don't know why
I cannot just explain
It is still a mystery
Why birds flock together uninhibited
Why ants crawl in columns orderly
I am yet to come to terms
Why animals are more peaceable
Than man who claimed rationality
I don't just understand
Why man cannot live in equanimity
Why do we abuse, discriminate, maim
Kill, manipulate and do much evils
Against fellow human beings?
Why are we trigger joyous?
Why can't the world be at peace?
Still, I don't have the answer.
Someone, please help me.
