Killing

Our Divine Right

Man at his best
cares about all life
Man at his worst
wants to kill it

Every now and then, the long and often sandy beach I walk along each morning is peopled by killers, poking the sands for mussels with their long, killing sticks. Were I not a Buddhist I would carry a gun, I think, and kill the bastards.
