.tiny tiny thing.

it is a tiny tiny thing

they say it is the enemy

and evil

i wonder

when you think how animals are treated

enslaved, hunted, squashed

& i bet they are glad we are indoors a while

yet it continues as essential

we think we own them

and imprison them

inseminate, take their babies

kill them and eat them as

essential

my mother said

what goes round

comes round

i guess the abattoirs are still open

as essential

it is a tiny tiny thing

hoping to survive

like us

like the coral

like all things
