Genius Animal

Sleeping
The ignorant animal sleeps all day
It hides itself far away
For what I cannot say
But at night it comes out to scream its cries
This animal, so pure and ominous, it will not tell a lie
It does not have the ability to
Too many wars it has been through
It has seen the worst, it has seen the best
But theres one thing that separates it from all the rest
After so many tragedies and so many casualities
It stays away from s and stays away from fallacies
The animal awoken in the day by a hunter
Should be sleeping but now must find shelter
It is smart and evades the men
It finds safety where they’ve already been
Alive yet another day
It crawls back to its den
And this is where itll stay
Nightfall comes oh so soon
It wakes up to the stars and the moon
Impeccable vision in the dark
It sets out to find where the others are
For it has not seen any for weeks maybe months
He must go find the others at once
All night of searching, no result once again
He goes back home fearing he ahs no friends
The men have come and killed them all
Soon enough the trees will begin to fall
So the lonely ignorant animal sits all alone
Not even knowing that in a few weeks man will destroy his home

    sad but very true...man forgets to compliment the cycle of life...certain animals have become pest and certain a prey to him..each and every living being [excepting may be man] seem to have a purpose
