MULE

Mutated meaning mutilated in existence
Utility in slave work the only definition left
Latent purpose without deferred fulfillment 
Exempted from kind, creation's prophecy

                     2
Matter alone excludes the language of love
Ulterior joy begins where life begins
Labor does not separate man from beast
Exult above the mule, above mere sentience to feel

                        3
Mare and Jack appropriated a cul-de-sac
Urge blind as bat useless passion taste
Lord, you made us better than the mule
Exhibits of praise for love's purpose and grace
