‘The Difference’

Animals think,

and animals react

 

Animals sleep,

and animals attack

 

Animals eat,

and animals mate

 

Animals fly,

and animals wait

 

Animals feel,

and animals cry

 

Animals sicken,

and animals die

 

Animals come,

and animals go

 

Animals watch,

and animals know

 

Animals stalk,

and animals deceive

 

But animals lack faith

—and cannot believe
