Splitting the Shares

A study done among us recently
Showed, although counterintuitively
We tend to answer generosity
Much as we would those acting selfishly

Its volunteers were paired up two by two
One freely given ten dollars unto
And asked to share th'amount, in his own view
Appropriate to give the other to

After each one had shared with his own mate
The other pairs would his performance rate
Among themselves consensus to create
Relegating one only to the fate

Of being barred from the following round
Beginning once the reject had been found
Jettisoned from immediate surround
With face undoubtedly turned to'ard the ground

At this, the ancientmost of sentences
Our primitive hominid race possess
Consigned to every sort of dread duress
Nor plea be heard, forever, for redress

Imagine we the selfish surely all
Speedily found themselves taking that fall
Such retribution, on later recall
Nor anyone, nor they themselves apall? 187 more words
