At the zoo

“Just look at them!
The pitiful creatures
living in their cages
trapped behind those bars.
Nothing to live for,
they go about their daily routines
with no happiness or peace.”

“I feel sorry for them really.
They just eat, sleep and walk about
like puppets attached to strings
making the odd yawn or growl now and then.”

“Mulling about in their prisons
and looking out at the world around them,
not ever knowing true freedom
or the wonder of their natural habitat!”

“Yes, a sad bunch of animals indeed!
I’m so glad we’re on this side of the bars!”
…said the lion to the giraffe.
