As the sun goes down, these things keep happening.
The birds are having their last meals of the day. Some will see the sun come up the next day and others will survive the power of darkness. But they will live the rest of their lives with the stigma of that darkness. The rest will sing praise to the Lord of light for bringing the sun back on time.
The lions are hunting for their morning meals. Some will catch their prey and some will keep hunting until all their strength is lost. Some will be trapped by lion hunters and become meat for markets.
The snakes are eating dust. Some will bite the heel of a human, and others? Others will lost lose their heads. The crabs are digging new holes, and coming out from old holes, abandoning their old ones. In doing so some crabs will end up being caught and made soup. Some will lose their lives in favour of a bite and therefore find themselves in a soup pot. Others will forever enjoy the old and new holes they and the soup pot crabs dug together. The cat will be hunting for a mouse. The fishes in the sea are swimming in all bodies of waters. Big fish are eating small fish while the nets and hooks are sending some of them to the fisheries. Those lucky to escape the nets are then eaten by other fish.
The cats are hunting for mice. Some will be bitten by snakes while they patiently await a daily meal. Others will be rejoicing, for they are filled with the skins and bones of rats.
The fish are swimming in all bodies of waters. Big fish are eating small fish while the nets and hooks are sending group of them to the fisheries. Others are escaping the nets and hook to continue eating one another.
The mosquitoes are making preparation to suck the blood out of humanity and transfer malaria. Some will die from the power of clean environment and due to the power of insecticides while others will continue to gorge on humans. Others will rejoice in the power of a dirty environment.
