Animals

Animals are social beings
But discarded as dispensable and inferior
Because anti-nature is glamorized and flaunted.
Humans increasingly distract themselves from nature
Which is like shrugging at the blood in your veins.

Animals are just as sophisticated and intelligent as humans
Only in different ways.
If anything they’re more intelligent
Because they know how to live sustainably.
They maintain their environment
If not improve upon it.

We piss in our own beds.
We cut our own wrists.
We wipe our asses with the rivers and then wonder why our water tastes like shit.

We as a people, as a civilization
As a stage in an evolutionary time line
A point in a bell curve
Are either at a stage of great infancy
Or great death
The way we muddle our words and soil ourselves.
