    The Beasts are Very Wise
    - Rudyard Kipling

    The beasts are very wise,
    Their mouths are clean of lies,
    They talk one to the other,
    Bullock to bullock brothers
    Resting after their labors,
    Each in stall with his neighbors,
    But man with goad and whip,
    Breaks up their fellowship,
    Shouts in their silky ears
    Filling their soul with fears.
    When he has plowed the land,
    He says: "they understand."
    But the beasts in stall together,
    Freed from the yoke and tether,
    Say as the torn flank smoke:
    "Nay, 'twas the whip that spoke."
