“They distinct us from animals”

People say

I just shake my head

“Why are we better?”

A little girl asks me.

I don’t know

What to answer

“ ‘Cause we’re clever”

A voice in my head echoes

But I close my mouth.

“ ‘Cause we have feelings”

But I just stay still

As I remember against my will

Our story of bloody violence

And endless intrigues.

I look at her eyes

Tears in mine

And I hear the truth

Coming out of my mouth:

“I don’t know.”
