The Animal and the Plant


The animal has a name of wonder,
A plant may never attack a wonder,
For the body of an animal is taking the plant,
And bodies are getting bigger
As they grow with eating alone.
To respire the body is like a plant
That does it all the time.
The plant is like Us - it lives perfectly.

The plant is not absurd, it is unblemished,
And the animal is less perfect, just some.
