The Beast In Man

I shower
And make myself respectable for the day
But say
Who has the power
To take the beast in man away?

I find
That many are kind
And that I can be kind in return
For man does learn
That it is pleasanter that way,
But say
Who can take the beast in man away?

When I smile
There can be no denial
That people like me that way,
But say
Who can take the beast in man away?

The Utopians say
That there will come a day
When man will not be this way,
But say
Have they not
Also got
Feet of clay?
