Earthlings

We patronize them for their incompleteness
for their tragic fate of having taken
form so far below ourselves
And therein we err, and greatly err
For the animals
shall not be measured by men
In a world older and
more complete than ours
they move finished and complete
gifted with extensions of the senses
we have lost or never attained
living by voices we shall never hear
They are not brethren
they are not underling
they are other nations
caught with ourselvesin the net of life and time
fellow prisoners of the splendourand travail of earth

It takes nothing away from

a human to be kind to an animal
