I wonder who is their God For birds that fly Up above the azure sky They have no war or artillery to shower from afar I wonder who is their God For creepy crawlies critters Often consumed as nutritious fritters Working at their micro level Behind the scene workers under gravel I wonder who is their God For wild animals that roam Restricted in their territory lone They kill to assuage their hunger Part of the food chain they pose no danger I wonder who is their God For the animals we keep Taming to fulfil our various needs Silently giving what we wrest Exploited to the extreme without any rest I wonder who is Our God For we are so self absorbed Milking taking to further our cause Never giving back what we get Greedy for control of whatever is left I wonder who IS our God Is it the Mammon that drives us and makes us go roun that suppresses our conscience that makes us kill our brethren I wonder if there is a God For we think we ARE unaware that we are bubble wrapped in a karmic petri-dish exposing our wares supposed immortality in mortality trapped.
