How can man be so vile?
How can boots of war tromp down the wildflowers
contentedly nodding their heads in the nourishing sunlight?
Are we so blind?
Do we forget the beauty around us?
Sit at the edge of a pond where
snakes are friends and bullfrogs serenade
your only thoughts will be of peace.
How can man be so vile in the midst of such beauty?
Let us open our eyes and love.
