Animals In Clothes - Poem by Egal Bohen

Animals in clothes I see
Driving cars or sipping tea
Animals in clothes I see
But they don't know what they are
These animals that drive a car?
Dress in clothes?
Sip the tea?
Just like you
Just like me
Very clever animals they'd be!

But they don't know what they are
These animals that drive a car
Dress in clothes
Sip the tea
Just like you
Just like me

So truly stupid animals they be
Not to realize what they are
Just because they drive a car
Sip the tea
Just like you
Just like me

Oh what stupid things we be
Not to realize what we are
Just because we drive a car
Dress in clothes
Sip the tea
So g-r-a-c-i-o-u-s-l-y!
You and Me

Oh what stupid things we are
Not to realize what we be
Animals that drive a car
Dress in clothes
Sip the tea
You and me

For if Mr Piggy had our brain
Ten fingers
Clothes, and a name
Wouldn't he be just the same?


1986

    Good to see a change from the romantic to the satiric and modern suburbia.
    Humour and parody, but with a deep self-questioning within. Retrospection
    leads to introspection, (Report) Reply

    Very effective writing. I vote a 10 for all the poems I have read. This reminds me of my visit to the Cincinnati zoo. They had installed a mirror in one of the exhibitions and when visitors looked into it, the inscription reminded them that they were animals too. (Report) Reply
