EARTHY TONES

My world

Just white and grey and earthy tones

The only color variation in my life

Are the inhabitants of the black desert

Beyond the comfort of the glass:

Soulless beasts, enslaved by men.

Most of whom are good masters,

Careful to keep them well-hydrated.

If another owner causes harm

To a beast that is not his own,

The offender is required to pay compensation,

And when one becomes too old or sick,

It is replaced

With a younger beast.
