Rhyming poem about animal instinct compared to Man's free will governing their actions.
Violence, cruelty, preying
upon the weaker are due to
instinct in animals; slaying
is something they are born to do.

Mankind has free will, intellect.
When he harms, kills, or rejoices
in acts full of hateful neglect,
these evil acts are his choices.

Man alone lives in the way he
decides, baring his soul to see.


Poetic format: quatrains with 8-syllable lines end-rhymed abab plus end-rhymed couplet
