Humanity is –
Anything except –
An intelligent species

Notes to this poem…
We’ve got a lot of smart people among us, sure. However, as a whole, I’m afraid I can’t vouch for us as an intelligent species.
And this had been written before the US election on 8-11! But it’s not just the US, of course. There’s a lot of other just stupid things going on the world over done by supposedly smart people or populations.
Sorry, humans. If I were aliens flying by looking for intelligent species to join some sort of group, I’d pass you over.
The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
