DEFINED REALITY
An antelope's savage bite
A snakes kiss
A rabbits mauling claws
A lions caress
Another happy day in life

See the killers tender smile
The priests evil
The virgins tempting gaze
The whores innocence
Talking merry all the while

Hero commits the heinous deed
Antagonistic saviours
The purity of lies
The cruelty of truth
Living on to sow your seed

Twisted ruthless be the judge
The criminal serene
Crazy people always sane
Power for the good
Life's conscience never nudged

Wow...that's really good...and I hate to say this but I find it kind of funny also.  A rabbit's mauling claws?  It's just hard to imagine although i do get your point.

I only know myself...and even that I don't know well.

This was very cool to read.  I have always liked the contrasting - most people cannot see past their own toes to notice the differences in life and how they pertain to us all.  And by the way, some rabbits hide their claws very well!  
Well done.
Shereen.

You have done what I have been trying to, just saying how you feel. Two thumbs up!

We spend our whole lives trying to live, only to realize that we donít know what life is truly about until it is too late.

very cool write. It really encapsulates the irony and hypocrisy of the world.With a few simple words you've managed to uncover certain truths that people shy away from or refuse to see...well done

Very nice. It was funny in a way. The irony in it was great.

Great.  I think you've captured one of mysticism's most profound insights.
