The Animal Spirit

From the beginning till now
She has been with them
And will remain till the final call
As old as the sin of man
The Animal Spirit thrives

She will sleep with them
And bathe them in hyssop
Fortify them against a foe
Make them agile and mighty
To countervail any oppressor
It is the same Animal Spirit


They will neither sleep nor blink
Thoughts gyrating and searching
To put every goal to where it must lie
While one seeks to win
The other seeks to win also
The Animal Spirit works on them all


Filling the barn of one to the brim
With the spoils of the sweat
Of those who are not counted keeping the old path
She empowers the other for the revolution
The same Animal Spirit runs through them
