A man sitting in a lifeboat…
begins to drill a hole under his seat.  
The other passengers challenge him, but he insists, 
“It is my seat and I can do what I want with it.”  
The passengers cannot convince him 
that they will all go down  together if the boat floods. 
 Each of our actions affects our fellow humans,
 sometimes in ways we cannot
immediately comprehend.
