Eagles and Men
Eaglets preyed upon each other today,
To claim a territory in their name…
Tumbling entangled, in a suicide fall,
Our human behavior, so much the same.
We all want to soar the highest,
Predatory winner of all prey…
What a futile, misguided life we live,
We all age, break, and rot someday.
We are equals fallen on the ground,
Humans and history decompose the same.
Historians may discover my bones,
But they will never know my name.
