Mountain goats in Kindu

Mountain goats in Kindu
Even with no mountains
They seek a view from above
A dirt hill will do

Eternal optimists
Jumping over trash
Nibbling on cans

Fate will not be kind to you
But I respect your instinct
To see the world differently
And believe in a better view

Sounds like you are describing aid workers. This should be the footnote to your Selfish Altruist entry.
