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.
