Carnivorous Beasts

 Does it make you weak to watch me bleed? 
 Are you an apathetic beast? 
 Is my love another meal to you? 
 Will it churn and run right through? 

 Did your heartbeat's pounding scare you 
 when in my carnivorous view? 
 Were you afraid of its strength unleashed? 
 Would I devour your fleshy feast? 

 Did you attack the lively prey first 
 for your yearning stomach's thirst, 
 or did you break my flesh apart 
 in self-defense of your own heart?              

For Giorgio's "Quotes" contest:
11) "If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."
- James Herriot
