Is this dream responsible?
Does the bird fly because it can or because it is supposed to soar?
Does a worm crawl because wings are the whores
of lofty decadence? Does the lion kill because it has found the best meat?
Does the zebra find it a patriotic feat
to stand against the plain brown plain - Black and white and eat’n
Is this dream virtuous?
Does the fish swim in schools
like conformity’s fools
deciding the tools
of individuality are less appealing than keeping the rules?
And do the stubborn mules
find compliance to suit their nature best
