We now eat at the end of a very long and opaque food chain. Food comes to us ready-made in packages that obscure as much information as they reveal.
-- Michael Pollan
Let me admit how little of the nature I understand
like, this thing about food chain comes to mind
unnecessary, no matter how well it's planned
involving eaters and eaten of different kind.
I mean, animals solely existing to be food of others
but why where those "others" created in first place
now, it's not some enigma that particularly bothers
but it's a kind of curiosity that I can't simply erase.
Moreover, why animals at all, shouldn't we wonder
I mean, why weren't we designed to be plant eaters
that's yet another thing that at idle times I may ponder
thinking often about all those ugly and crawling critters.
I can't just ascribe this poor reasoning to a god
for, no matter how "mysterious" his work may be
this huge variety of living species seems to be odd
again -- I mainly mean ugly ones from a crock to a flea.
I'm not kidding, since nature appears to be so smart
to orchestrate all this complicated life on Earth
how could it have such a lack of a heart
to let lion kill his offspring at birth.
You see, whether I think Darwin or a god
I find it sometimes a little hard to agree
nature is looking like one grand fraud
or it seems so to the ignorant me.
