As Yet-another-Pustule-on-the-Planet,

a microscopic part of the filthy rash
that evolution has infected itself with,
I think more of us should try
very gently, not too hard,
to be - at least - unaspiring pus,
contented trash.

Where does aesthetics come in to this frankly, ugly and revolting, thought? I only ask the artist who formulated it? I admit in making this comment I have foregone my Buddhist non-judgement.

As far as æsthetics go, humans are among the less-lovely species. Wolves, bears, hyænas, butterflies, magpies...etc.are all very much more beautiful. We whiteskinned humans are not that much more attractive than the average earthworm. Humans "of color" get sort-of close to the beauty of gorillas and Slow Lorises, but are still pretty low down on the evolutionary-æsthetic scale.
