man is arrogant enough
to group everything into
“natural” or “man-made”

as if humans weren't an
active part of nature and
therefore rather “natural”

as if we don't have the same
responsibility to humanity as
to what's completely “natural”

we're so different
(so superior?)
we need a new
all to ourselves

and if the frogs took over
our dear planet tomorrow
would everything then
suddenly become either
“natural” or “frog-made?”
where would we be?
