Uncritical Force of Habit is Ruining Our Planet (a fractured sonnet)

accepting superstitious notions; blindly
making bad decisions based upon
some fatalistic view excusing what we
do. pretending that it isn't wrong
to hunt and kill, 'cause our genetic makeup
built into our brains the way we think;
and therefore justifying (for the sake of
greed or entertainment) every thing
we do; including war, pollution, selfish
gain and other wicked deeds. but what
if there's a kind and thoughtful act pray tell? is
this an aberration...or as much
a part of our inheritance as all those
evil things we nourish, letting grow?
