One Glance

What is hide?
What is stone?
What is bark?

One glance
will tell you
they're all
the same.

A Corrective

Hide is where the stone
Barks -- but stones can’t bark! If struck
Together, they spark.

Not to know these things
Is to be unobservant.
Flayed bark kills off trees.

The same happens to
Cattle, whose hide, skinned, leaves them
Raw, exposed, ravaged.

Only some snakes and
Lizards can slough off their skins
And survive, transformed.

On this stone rock, by
Refining insight, we stand
A chance to survive.
