February 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 171

"Oh I must think. The father gave you, cow,a craftier brain than mine. The wisdom of debatelies in a futile position and the quickest mind,of which I have the mind, but my wisdom full known,I am but a target for the 'cluck' and 'moo,' oh moan."

"You a target? I see no circles on your back,only fine shiny scales that, I'm sure, wonderfully protect youfrom the gnashing flames of your hell. I am amazedat how tall and handsome and strong you stand.I am but a simple cow. And you the hero,the fighting man of which I am so proud to calla friend. But so to be pitied those stripes upon your backor circles or scales; I lost my train of thought;However, whatever - it is a crimethe way they treat you! You are not used up,already had, beaten! You are proud! You are not defeated!Though all who prosper are against you! Though upright menspit upon your name! Though your strength is equalto only the tiniest weakest little thing! Though even the chickenhas defeated you in battle. You stalk on. And you will finda smaller, weaker prey to hunt! For you area natural, the dinosaur of all living predators.And the songs sang of your victory in defeatwill be among the herds and cattle a legendfrom which our young ones will learn to fear God and grow!Oh gentlest, meekest, snake!"

"I've met my match. Of, cow, your WitI am amazed not even a flicker of the eyeto give your lie away. I should but cower youand bring you to your knees. But I shall calmlyplay your game - defeating your Wit, though not with speedIt is force with which I reckon, being not like I was.But then who is? Even the stars above,of which I've seen, have you? -- They too flicker out...and die. And whole constellations fade from the eye.Cow, your wisdom, may be unbeatenon the farm. But I have flown the universe --and ridden each dark thought. I've counted heights of wavesin flight to Hell, and lived to tell. And your pityI can do without. The price upon my headhas put on me a weight I can only hope to holdday and night. If you could see the struggle I fightheroic every dayyou could see the God within."
