Native Americans were expert
hunters and warriors
but they had spiritual reverence.
To each animal hunted
They gave thanks and praises:
“Thank you for helping me to survive
You’re my brethren
brother sister family
Circle of life.
Giving your life so I can exist
is the ultimate sacrifice.
I will utilize all of you
It’s the least I could do
To show respect and reverence”.
Animals are wiser than humans
in naturalness they’re free of shame
because they’re innocent
unlike us perverted humans
looking for weakness and ways to blame
taking pleasure in the hunt and the game.
