Caged, trapped animals,
nowhere much to move.
Same old thing everyday,
Yesterday is like today.
Little kids press their hands
up to a bar for a better look.
They yell and shout, tease
about the animals. But please,
the mothers and fathers
just stand there like it's nothing.
Who do they think they are?
Some fancy model in a fancy car?
They don't give the world that
maybe the animals inside are bleeding.
Bleeding inside because all they are seen
as are stupid creatures with no mean.
I hate zoos, for this very reason.
They make my stomach twist and turn
because it shows how very little they care,
how little they, us, humans are there.
Caged trapped animals,
poor innocent souls.
