The blood-filled heart

The complexity of breath

The miraculous biology

Of birth and life and death

Packaged up in pieces

Of mortal meat and bone

We take the lives of others’

Though we never take our own

The body with a beating heart

A living consciousness

Made of mind and muscle

All is lost in death

Leaving only morsels

Of meat upon the bone

Though we take the lives of others’

We never take our own
