Monster Or Man

In the reassessment of monsters and men,
what is really the differences in the end?
The Darkness is in all walks of life,
whether you are a creature of day or night.
One fights to survive while the other fights to thrive.
Who will win in the battle between instinct and free will?
Is it only men who kill,
while the animal is just looking for its next meal?
I use the words rape, sex, lust pretty lose,
because to the beast it is just reproduce.
One lives off the land and the laws of nature.
The other so called supreme race I think will be judged one day has a disgrace.
