Zoo Do


Zoo animals - to be or not?
The wild animals have no choice,
As humans argue this a lot,
Cuz only humans have that voice.
Humans have, for better or worse,
Dominion over all on Earth.
The past shows this as mostly curse
In how humans deem what is worth,
Making non human, human hell.
The power over life and death,
Will humans ever use such well?
No wild animal holds its breath.

Wild animals are in a zoo,
Because that's just what humans do.

    A nicely written piece. One of life's great mysteries to me is how and what animals think and feel. There are many I've heard say that animals have no feelings, no brain, are not capable of thinking. Ugh! Nothing aggravates me more! Wouldn't it be truly wonderful if our animal friends could speak?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
