Animal

Have we outgrown our animal nature…

Advertisements

There was a time

When the animal

Was buried

Deep within the man.

Civilized nature meant

That the veil was thick.

One would have to dig

Really deep before

The animal reared

It’s ugly head.

This, alas ,

Is the age of speed.

And everything is done

In double quick time.

And so it feels

That the veneer

Has grown really thin.

You just need

To scratch the surface now

And the animal comes

Roaring out.
