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.
