Why must it be so?

P1070466 mod sharp crop signed


Pretty garden spider
Like the jungle tiger
The same old tale
On a smaller scale

Why must it be so?
Wherever you go
Every creature’s feature
Hunter or hunted in Nature

Blood and gore
For ever more
From the start
Until death do us part

Why must it be so?
Couldn’t humans show
Some brilliant ingenuity
And do away with this iniquity?

For everyone milk and honey
Every being as meek as a bunny
Wouldn’t that be nice?
Just as in Paradise

I can hear your icy sneers
Like hailstorm in my ears:
That is life, that’s the go
You should know it must be so!

Yet, despite the cursèd doom
Let us pray to cast away the gloom
May the gentle, caring dove
Spread the word of peace and love!

    Que la colombe de paix répande l’amour. Qu’elle répande au coeur des hommes la connaissance de l’amour divin .
