“Inhumanity”

They told me
food coloring was the culprit.
“Red causes impulsive outbursts
and yellow causes depression.”
To me, it seems
a bit like
blaming behavior on horoscopes.
Any scapegoat
to excuse one’s self
from the expectation
of being human.
Responsibility is no longer necessary
if you have a doctor’s note.
But when did we decide
to sacrifice living
for mere justification?
