Silly Human Tricks

How many hoops must we jump through
To try to make more sense,
And doing so, the more undo
Direct intelligence?
Our basic needs turn into math,
Money and politics,
That bury nature's simple path
In silly human tricks.
Soon all our instinct will be gone
And intellect so dense
That all its jingling mental "keys"
Will lock us out of sense.

Глупые уловки людей

Versions: #1#2#3
Через барьеры нам скакать,
Хоть что-то, чтоб понять,
И по дороге растерять,
Что видно, как пить дать
Еда, питье и секс порой -
Под маскою идей,
Природа скрыта мишурой,
Уловками людей.
Инстинкты скоро пропадут,
И глупые мозги,
Звеня идеями, крадут
Способность видеть зги.

Kevin, I bet you meant to say hoops, not loops. [@Kevin Rainbow]

(H)oops! Yes, "loops" I guess sounds a bit loopy.
