Like fishes choked by water
Like birds choked by air
Like trees choked by the earth
Noses choke by air of life
How noses fight air
Thinking to win,  beats imagination
Who fights the earth on which he stands?
No matter how carnivorous earth seems
Who can fight and live on it?
We are cows being reared by earth
During its occasions it kills to please
And when its visitors trend
It slaughters to fend
So it slaughters at its will and wishes
We curse, rebel, fight
But our chains are in the hands of the earth
Which sends us grazing in its belly
And keeps its eyes on us wherever we go
Until we ripe for its pots
Or its needs call for us
