A Chicken Without Feathers


A chicken without feathers
Is still a chicken
A woman without breasts
Is still a woman
A farm without a tractor
Is still a farm
Hope without reason
Is still hope
An idea without originality
Is still an idea
A people without government
Is still a people
Earth without human beings
Is still Earth
Existence without meaning
Is still existence
The mind without thinking
Is still
