I Love You!
So, let me get this straight again,
you're saying that animal's cool
because it's 'cute' and is your 'friend'
and has a name like you,
but that one over there is not
because it smells of doo?
Butterflies matter because they fly?
Doesn't that seem obtuse,
implying things devoid of wings
are really of no use?
Every beast's a beast, and that
most likely means that we
are not worth more - aren't 'better' than
the fish that freak the sea -
and that includes the cells that span
the breadth of you or me,
inside their bodies just the same
as humans claim to be.
The same who crush the tiny dudes
on sidewalks as they pass
will strangely pet the playful pups
at rest upon the grass,
walking away completely assured
'those animals have class',
because of things like wagging tails
and barks (not all can have),
which doesn't bode well for the sails
that certain insects cast;
in fact suggests they won't prevail
wherever Man sheds mass.
Well, I'm not going to be the one
who tells the gooey things
that they can''t come to 'Happy Land'
because they cannot sing,
and I think that if God loves 'Man'
it''s likely God loves everything,
(since only perfect tolerance
could stomach such hypocrisies!)
Well, that is all the time we have
(since I am 'just a bee'
for I must get back to the hive
to help our industry).
I'm very glad you are alive!
Aren''t you as glad for me?
