Human Race



The human race is clueless
The human race is smart
The human race is everything from waste to art

The human race is hapless
The human race is fate
The human race is everything from block to gate

The human race is spineless
The human race is strong
The human race is everything from noise to song

The human race is tactless
The human race is kind
The human race is everything from loose to bind

The human race is useless
The human race is dear
The human race is everything from mud to clear

The human race is aimless
The human race is game
The human race is everything from wild to tame

The human race is heartless
The human race is nice
The human race is everything from warm to ice
