"All that Man is, all mere complexities..."

Having denatured ourselves
we have devoted our brief and tragic
time upon the planet
to denaturing in one way or another
every other creature.

[The quotation is from Yeats' BYZANTIUM:
A starlit or a moonlit dome disdains
All that man is,
All mere complexities,
The fury and the mire of human veins.]
