How come Colonial powers fear my Animal instincts?

Posted on: November 19, 2020

Why now and then, warrior colonial powers feel the urge to go hunting?

Why a few animal species are preserved, while underdeveloped people are still ripe for extermination?

Going Hunting (first posted in 1998)

1. I’m going to war.

My government has decided.

I need to release my animal instincts.

For economic reasons,

For political reasons,

For religious reasons.

I’m going to war, today,

For no reasons:

Just kicking butts.

2. What animal instincts do they fear in me?

I’ve never seen animals killing others

From miles away.

I’ve never seen an animal

Who has just gorged

On hamburger and pizza,

Going a-prowling,

To kill and maim.

3. Never seen an animal

Returning from the hunt,

In clean and spec fur,

Shining from shoulders to boots.

Never seen an animal

Returning from the hunt,

To eat more and get drunk silly.

They used to find themselves a cool shade

To rest and sleep off the feast.

4.   What animal instincts do they fear in me?

I had a dream of cannibals at war

And I was a reporter of this war.

Once a victor felled his enemy, he would kneel and achieve him.

The victor is serenely and religiously eating his enemy flesh, raw.

For him, the war is already over:  He stops killing other victims,

He is not helping his tribe warriors to overcome more enemies.

His enemies will not interfere with his eating;

They stay away from this pair,

Both finally at peace.

5. For both the victor and the victim the war is over.

When the dust of war settles down all the living warriors,

From both waring camps

Prepare a joint bonfire and finish off the remains of their victims.

They leave the battlefield in peace.

They don’t carry any leftovers:

Nature and its beasts need to take their shares of the slaughter.

What animal instincts do they fear in me?

Underdeveloped people are still being exterminated

By preemptive wars, mass killing weapons,

Medical experiments and testing of vaccines

Mass transfer of people to less fertile regions

Burning of virgin forests

Private acquisition of fresh water sources

Polluting rivers and lands with their poisoned waste…

And they are still warning us of climate change

And the colonization of space and other planets

How come Colonial powers keep fearing my Animal Instincts?
