Animals

Are we so different?   Or the same

Within every man   Is a beast   We are untamed   Bloodthirsty

Instinct   Primal   Inherent

Or

Above?

Intelligence   Technology   Structure   Lies

Creatures know no such creativity   As self-deception

All of us   All but us   Only the mammals   But not us   Or only us   Animal in us

Separate!

We are of dust   Breathed into us   Same Image

His Breath   My soul   No beast   We are not of the field

Anima; breath   Anima: soul

But all animals   Breath the same   Air

The same extended hymn
