  • As I stood there, half a foot away from chaos about to erupt, I gave a glancing look at the fighting cocks raring to have a go at each other, pawing the ground with all their might.

    I pitied them at that moment - inherently violent creatures who viciously attack each other and anything resembling themselves, unable to live at peace with each other for their insatiable thirst for dominion over others.

    A small part of me also wondered if somewhere, somehow, a higher life form pitied us for exactly that reason as well.
