He plows his harrowed fields—visions grand!
Lushly, planned, large yeilds;
Bugs frantically seeking shields
As farmers plant the hayfields.

Judge Not
Judge Not

Judging human parasites—freeloaders
Foul fodder feeds these plights.
Judges accost not mans flights.

Sunrise
The fiery orb now grows in warmth slowly,
Liquid gold, limpid glows,
Gilds lank skies in godlike pose,
Dispels grief and human woes.

Blood and guts fly all around.
