SOCIETY


cloud made of fire
ocean made of dust
people are animals
and animals made of us

the people i approach
often bark and stare
and the animals i trust
seem to not care

kids and woman
live in trees
and all the men left ground
to fall on our knees

i take a look around
just to see who passes my way
and a monkey turnes around
and says have a good day
