1) Compare and contrast:
the lilies of the field,
the birds of the air,
the wolves in their lair,

trailing endemic poverty in their wake
and holding double standards in their hands.

and heroes with bloody hands,

b) why our cats have drawn claws
and our roses have no thorns.
You may begin.
You have very little time.
