There is no falsehood

to be found within a fire

-neither is there deceit

clutched in the beaks of eagles

One is too busy in its roar

The other, too focused on its soar

That is not murder in the eyes of the owl

as it targets its prey

-neither is it anger that causes the wind

to chase the clouds away

As for humans?

…sigh!….we’ll speak of them another day
