"Compassion 2012" Painting by Drea Jensen From “Compassion 2012”
Painting by Drea Jensen

by what precept
does innocence suffer
at hands of the guilty
is it simply misfortunate
“wrong place wrong time”
or something more sinister
raw feral
unevolved ethics
survival of fittest
without metaphysics
is cruelty an instinct
organic aggression
the piece of the human
he shares with the beast
are opposable thumbs then
the only
defining distinction
compassion and kindness
mere koans
of mutated spirit
