God’s Creatures

Oh wicked man

Created in the image of the Divine

Yet your mind

Is so contrived and quick to deny

Rights to anyone but yourself

More ravenous than a lion

Seeking your prey

Demanding them to obey

Or die

Leaving them wondering why

They can’t live in peace

And just survive

Why can’t they be free in nature

Instead of caged with lives wagered

On the next round of scientific studies

Burned skin, damaged brains and diseased puppies

Where is the compassion for our fellow Earthlings

Is this what we do with dominion over all things

Can’t we live and let live

Repent and ask God to forgive

Us for our selfish demands

Grant us the ability to understand

And live as one with the land

And all His creations

Build us a new foundation
