“Social Animal”

A lion does not kill if not hungry

A snake does not bite if not threatened

A cow does not eat more than required

A bird does not store for tomorrow.

Only man with insatiable desire

Eats beyond the limit of hunger

Cheats, hates, conspires

To amass unlimited wealth

Mostly at the cost of his health.

Lives between concrete walls

Maintains many weapons of destruction

Still feels less secure than animals in wilderness

Imagines security in having lots of money

Animals get only food for their children

Man can give much to so many

But keeps all for his generations many

Knowing well that he can’t take any

Blind he is though blessed with foresight

A very unsocial animal man is!
