A caveman speaks to a rock:
Are you food?
Are you shelter?
Do you feel the cold weather?
Do you feel the time passing?
Are you time?
Where is time?
What is crime?
How should I spend the daytime?
It’s either dinner time or war time
Therefore I’m a carnivore.
Why aren’t you talking back?
Did I say something offensive?
What does being offensive even mean?
But what does being mean mean?
You’re not mean my rock.
You don’t even talk.
What is a tree to the hunger of man?
A fruitful rack to feed the mouth which curses
A pillar to be brought down under feet, which stomp the life out of the living
What is a cigarette to the inhaler?
A burning sun in the sake of its lover
A circular tribute to nothingness
What is a horse to a rider?
A transportation method to be beaten
Blinded by leather which man wears to establish establishments
What is a river to a drinker?
A stream of water to replenish the unreplenishable thirst of man
To fill the belly of an abyss
To take the first step towards eternal thirst
What is a rock to its holder?
An instrument which gives birth to pain and purpose
A burden to starve the boredom of the burdened
A weight which crushes the force of an ape
What is man to a cross?
A forsaken son
A stream of blood to replenish the unreplenishable savagery of man
What is man to man?
A sword to conquer man
And thus man asks man
What is life to being?
