Useful And Fantastic: facing the mirror

Val Yule's poem forces us to face our own nature.

Humankind that cannot bear
very much reality
is unaware of our duality
with enemies we share
the evil that we see
only in the foe we know
the mirror to our greed
the glass to our fear, the seeds that we sow.
We cannot see it near and close
but over there, we know.
And name the evil in our foe.
