Maybe

There is no representation  
for the Four-Footed  
at any sovereign table;

neither is there a place  
for the Feathered-Wing  
to perch, void from bullet;  
 
nor Finned-Fish to swim  
free of baited hooks;  
or, Earthen-Heartbeat  
to drum her voice  
 
Man considers himself  
superior, but we are not  
separate from Nature  
 
One day we'll understand  
that we occupy space  
as everything in Creation  
 
And, as everything in Creation  
are just as susceptible  
to Nature's destruction  
 
Maybe it won't be too late  

Maybe
