The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 244 - Poem by Flying Lemming

Welcome to the concrete jungle safari
Please climb aboard if you want to travel with me
Keep arms inside all the time you’re on the tour
Of your personal safety I want to be sure
We’ll start by heading up to the gorillas over there
That stand by clubs and throw out guys with the wrong hair
Packs of coyote muggers hang round looking for prey
A weak person wandering off won’t last long this day
The cheetahs sit by the lights, revving, roaring more
Then zoom off at stupid speeds disregarding law
In alleys lurking in the dark the scavengers all wait
For drunken gazelles staggering by not knowing their fate
And in the dark the lions keep control along the line
Their violent threats underlined with fang like blades that shine

Animals are thought as vicious, full of temper fit to burst
Of all nature, human nature has power to be the worst
