I wonder why it is that artists choose
to pour their heart and soul into their art.
I wonder why it is that they refuse
to realize that their work has no part
In bettering the state of humankind.
Their dedication almost breaks my heart.
I wonder why it is that they've declined
abandoning their work so they could start
Productive work in scientific fields.
For that is where we humans shine most bright.
I wonder why the artist never yields
It's evident that scientists are right.
If you have read this poem and agree
Then you've lost touch with your humanity.
