The cause of pain is cruelty

The cause of pain is cruelty,
concentration’s wire.
Bodhisattvas disagree;
they claim the cause, desire.

Biologists explain that genes
are really quite germane
while bombers show just what it means.
The effect is the same.

just wondering: do all the poems so far belong in the same section of the series?

Hi rui,
I've been posting poems that I consider finished, so they come from different sections. Thanks for reading!
