the wolves have been out all night
but now the sun is beginning to shine
so that all of the rabbits and squirrels
can come out from darkness
and have their day
a day of procreation and preservation
a day of running and fucking
a day of looking around
seeing what all there is out there
to nest and to nurture
to hunt and to steal
how we all survive
clawing at each others backs
this mindless hell
we look down on them
we step on them and we shoot them out of the sky
we say "Take that!"
stupid animals
if they were just a little bit smarter,
they'd have us all for lunch
