Feast of Humanity

The creature we all feed on
feeds on us in return
turning poisoned teeth of humans
into emotional concerns
not always loving missives
not always hate filled curse
but a necessary living
to complete the human verse

But the feeding turns to cruelty
when we clamp down to the bone
covering with greed’s laughter
the slowly dying moans

And if the feast continues
‘til gluttony is done
we have an empty carcass
a vision of what will come

So feed and gorge and satiate
your human needs and wants
but leave the breathing being
to which we all belong
