Sunshine – Coyotes



 
We are the coyotes. We watch
We live free, in spite of you men.
We leave footprints in the snow
on your doorstep.
We sing joy and sorrow through
the evening air.
We are accused of many crimes–
some of which we did not commit.
You hunt us–shoot, trap, poison
run us to exhaustion on loud
machines

instead of using your own wits
and strength.
But still, in the hills, in the deserts, in
the cities
we survive, multiply, spread.
 
 
And when you men have fouled the
Earth beyond your
ability to survive
Or destroy each other in an
argument no one      won,
We will be there
To scavenge
To cleanse the now unburdened Earth
To bring back the harmony
Until another race of creatures
believes itself smart enough to
manipulate the parts without
knowing the whole.
We are the coyotes. We watch.
