AN INCIDENT


I'm amazed by what i saw
the cat was eating the food that i gave to them
eating it as if there's no tomorrow,
greedy in the sense that it was going to swallow all in her mouth,
amused on how they quarrel on each other just to grab it first in the row,
i cant believe what i saw right before my eyes uncanny sense of surviving,
Living is a matter of surviving the survival of the fittest,
self-preservation is the utmost primordial concern,
the end cannot justify the means somehow,
morally correct today in order to live
If animals are behaving like that how much more we human beings...
