I and my cats stargaze..
And i wonder what they think.
Do they see Orion the Hunter?
Ursa and her cub?
Leo the Lion, their cousin?
Do they wish as some of us wish for
A kinder planet?
I like to think they do.
There is one thing i know for sure..
That we humans are not the brightest bulbs in our world. Not the smartest animals by a longshot.
And if the stars could speak our language, they’d tell us how stupid we are.
Same goes for our cats.
Even dung beetles know shit when they see it!
Someday, in the the far future, a child will come across an orange dung beetle. Perhaps he or she will crush it the way children sometimes crush bugs. Maybe.. the other dung beetles will see it and scurry away? Or maybe, the child will let the dung beetle continue to eat shit and live in shit because it’s deserving of that life?
Karma, friends. It’s a real thing! Never forget it!
