You will always have less trouble with a snake in a towsack than a man in a robe

Sanctity of Life

If life is to be revered in itselfWhy does the tiger have claws?

The Hawk have talons?

The serpent, fangs?

Are not these instruments of death

also instruments of life?

That which is taken from one

is given to another

An exchange of breath

Life itself cannot be revered without stumbling over

this fatal contradiction,

Indeed, such moral dilemmas may well be the rabbit holes

on the path to enlightenment
