Mother Nature Elucidates
October 8, 2001

I gave you instinct,
You deny it to follow
The canon law
Not my law
Which is not even a law
Merely standards

Divide the tree,
Build shelter.
Hunt the rabbit,
Nourish yourself.
You say, 'Should I kill to survive?
Who am I to say yea or nay?'

Your instinct is found within
But none the same!
Thence the creation of morality,
From which you have created
Unequal laws
Not my laws.
Which are not even laws
Merely standards

Sprawl across fields,
To find repose.
Cross great mountains,
To find adventure.
You say, 'Should I have goals?
Who am I to say one's goals are wrong?'

I gave you the key to unlock
Knowledge of great sort
But you have tainted it!
Used it to betray me
Against my own will
To follow
Unequal laws
Not my laws.
Which are not even laws
Merely standards

So pick from the tree
To nourish desire.
None are false,
All delightful in nature,
Though each one make you different.
But who am I to tell you which to choose?
