John Prine

Some humans ain't human
Some people ain't kind
You open up their hearts
And here's what you'll find
A few frozen pizzas
Some ice cubes with hair
A broken Popsicle
You don't want to go there

Some humans ain't human
Though they walk like we do
They live and they breathe
Just to turn the old screw
They screw you when you're sleeping
They try to screw you blind
Some humans ain't human
Some people ain't kind


Why work together

Why Work Together?

  • There’s something meaningful to do together:

    • Goal Achievement

    • Interdependence

  • The perceived value of working together is greater than the perceived cost (and not just in dollars).
