Animals think
they’re pretty smart
shit on the ground,
see in the dark

but they do see
to not step
in their own shit
so they are smarter than us.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  10. Susan, there is such wisdom in these spamic words. We do step in our own shit so to speak, and end up blaming others for making us shit. 🙂 (language, language, language!)
