Heady Lions sprint through hoops, leading the pack in rumbling roars.
Acrobatic squirrels juggle little acorns tip their hats.
Rhinoceros in suit, bow tie and cuffs
Spins a ball on tip of tusk.

(Every life has a definite nature, a distinct essence, and a particular form)

Why doesn’t sloth sprint like cheetah?
Cat bark like leaping hound?

Or finch the fineness of his perch.
Bluejay his moving antics.
Or worm to burrow beneath the earth.

Nor lecture bees to find their fill.
Vultures only know their swooping.
The ant only knows his skill.

A calm crimson fox

creeps with the shadow

beckons furry  innocents

as an easy kill before

she preys mercilessly

upon them in their meekness

The preying mother returns spoil

to her craving young
