Homo Circumspectus

In the absence of trust and friendship
human beings will become cool experts
expecting outputs and outcomes.

In the exchange of benefit for doubt
human beings will become masters
of compliance, calculation and risk aversion

Survival will produce chameleons
Natural selection will train us in adaptation
The gap will ever widen.

The end of sincerity is nigh.
