THE ANIMAL KNOWS BEST

The human ignores the stiffening of the back under threat,
Tightening of the chest at unkindness
The urge to run at the distant rumble
The animal raises its hackles, growls and crawls to its den staying safe
The human hears only judgement
Believes the world is perfect and itself damaged
The animal knows the world is dangerous
The animal knows best
