DEATH IS A LUXURY FOR US – HUMANS


~DEATH IS A LUXURY FOR US – HUMANS~



We are at the top of the food chain;
we eat them all but no one to eat
our flesh to satisfy their hunger.

They die the death of a helpless victim
by the teeth of the predator or the
beak of the birds of prey and talons.

They do not have the luxury to get
advance warning of coming death;
it comes out of the blue and they die.

Sometimes death is quick if lucky;
to be eaten while alive or plunged
in boiling water when alive is bad.

We fall ill and death knocks the door
but we try to get away from it with
the help of the nurses and the doctors.

Even the planning of death is done
in the best possible way by selection
of a nice plot and type of casket.

It almost looks like a celebration
with a gathering of loved ones and
a feast like atmosphere after that.

Death is a luxury for us humans,
compared to rest of the creatures
getting eaten in a long food-chain.
