Man

Can a dog catch an eyelash?
Can a fly prepare a meal?
Can a fern think up three wishes?
Knows a fox which crown to steal?

Does the grass shake off bad thoughts?
Does an ant live on its own?
And do cows look into space?
Or hawks at what they’ve grown?

Can you hunt, kill and devour?
Without remorse, cause then you’re fed?
Sit on a twig, flap your wings?
Always keep swimming, till you’re dead?

Can you just stand there? Give me air?
Breathe the life just back in me?
I don’t think that you can do that,
So what are you then, to me?
