Lecture of the midwife

It is by an accident of birth,
trivia made sensate, made sublime,
that one thinks he inherits the earth.
Of mere habitual murder, starving times
and happy viruses, Death the glutton—
none but mankind prides his entry
onto this satellite of burning hydrogen,
nor his perpetual insecurity.
