Klaus J. Gerken

the cat’s in the bushes
the dog’s in a howl
the fox glides through the shadows
all on a prowl

it’s safe to say nothing
escapes a routine
in the drama that follows
no one is mean

the quest for survival
is a deep rooted fear
that humans exploited
through a terrible tear

no creature will slaughter
for a truth they believe
like man is a given
from godly reprieve

cain killed his brother
god wanted blood
humans have always
stuck to that path
