patient enough like a vulture
waiting for a carcass as its culture
man will watch you die
than help you revive

happy enough like a dog
wagging its tail to get a bone
man will bark at you
when he gets what he wants

sweet-mouthed like hypocrites
going the south and taking the north
man will knock you down
and kick you for not standing

life therefore has taught us
not to act like a candle
that lit others
and burnt away itself

while the pot boils
friendship booms

« return.
