Savage Paradise

If at first
you don’t succeed,
for me there is
no trying,
only a half-empty
wine bottle
rolling down
a hill towards
the savage paradise
and its innocent
creatures who slaughter
for survival and
all living things
must perish.

That’s the natural world,
either embrace all or
die suffering.

My bottle keeps
rolling on,
I just hope it doesn’t
before the flavours are
consumed by
the same tribes
I’m hiding from.
