What We Are

The Goats graze around
The Slaughter house
From time to time
Because they just ever
Don't know a thing

But then again
They are goats afterall
And they're not supposed
To know a Destined thing

But from time to time
Before the busy Butcher
Comes around some
Vultures hang around
Because they know a thing
But maybe nothing more

But then again
They are vultures afterall
So they ought to know
From time to time
Atleast a thing or two

For We are what we are

Which is why I wonder
Even from time to time
That maybe one goat in all
Before its Time did got a hint
But that was just a thought.
