Consumption Conundrum

in poetry •  8 months ago

Nature as brutal
As it is beautiful
Desiring neither the arctic wolf’s starvation
Nor the consumption of the caribou calf
I am presented with a conundrum

Of cruel nature

Of course the choice
Is not mine to make
Dog will eat dog
Dog will starve
Dog will drown

And I, human obsessed with
Comfort and ease
Have escaped the ordeal of
Or be hunted

And watch from the comfort of my living room
Where nature will not find me
