When Konrad Lorenz studied how small fish
Overcame lethal greedy tendency
By activating new dependency -
Called love - to build a larger fulfilled wish,
He clarified the dynamic sweep and swish
Of conquest across Earth’s wide land and sea
That gave to humans such ascendancy,
Watched warfare grow as in a petri dish.

War against Other creates Family.
The nut of war that no hard mind can crack
If opened would show God Life Blaze Attack,
Drying white hot deaths else left clammily.
So life says Outcompete! Outnumber! Breed!
Build Love of Tribe and State! Expand! Succeed!
