poem: "our hold on the planet" by robert frost.

Frost infers that man must be favored to a certain degree or the population of mankind could not have steadily increased.
"Take nature altogether since time began,
Including human nature, in peace and war,
And it must be a little more in favor of man,
Say a fraction of one percent at the very least,
Or our number living wouldn’t be steadily more,
Our hold on the planet wouldn’t have so increased."
