Crocodile Tears & Buffalo Wings
by Marilyn Schnepp  
4/16/2009 / Teen Issues

Have you ever heard
A sparrow complain
That robins sport red vests
While his suit's mundane?

And surely the burro
Has legitimate gripes:
When he says he "feels drab
Next to a zebra with stripes."

And what about the camel
With his crooked spine;
Surely you've heard him
Whimper and whine?

Have you heard the buffalo...
Moan and cry
As he begs God for wings
So he can fly?

Or the beaver wishing
For a bushy tail,
While the bushy-tailed fox
Wants a house like a snail?

No, my friend,
Nature's quite content;
It's only Human Beings
Who weep and lament.

We alter our hair color,
Tan or whiten our skin,
Then starve ourselves silly
Just to be pencil thin.

We pierce our navals,
Lips, tongues and eyes;
Plus dye, paint and tuck
Our hair, nails and thighs.

In fact, Man's so disgruntled
With "WHO" he is,
That God only knows
Which is a Mister or Miz.

Now, you and I know
We were formed out of sod;
And magnificently designed
In the very image of God.

So think for a moment...
How we must break God's heart
Every time that we alter
His best Work of Art.
