Multiplying and Dividing

There's some debate on whether sex is an idea or not.
(It certainly is something that gets thought about a lot.)
For reproduction, countless species have sex at their leisure,
Though humans are the only ones who do it just for pleasure.

But earth is just a spherically-shaped piece of real estate
And we should know empirically its resources, though great,
Are finite, and eventually will not support us all.
And yet we keep consensually filling up this ball.

And as the population grows and spreads through different lands,
These locales become homes to many different tribes or bands.
Each member looks on his or her own group with puffed up pride.
Alas, the more we multiply, the more we must divide.
