The mindoverMadness Poetry Series: Animals in Cages

As a preface to my upcoming post, I’ve decided to continue the moM poetry series with a related piece about my thoughts on mistreatment of animals. Enjoy!

 

Animals in Cages

You stare out at me with

Vacant eyes.

You look past the

throngs of tourists,

Past the kids with their sticky hands,

pushing their fingers between

Cold Steel,

Past the tired parents with their lack of

Control,

Past the rainbow of faces pressed against

Foggy Glass,

Holding their breath in hopes you’ll

Charge the Cage.

 

But you don’t make a move.

 

You are asleep behind those wide eyes.

You would dream of a

different life

if you

knew one,

but you’re just

Animals in Cages.

 

I watch you move, match

Your eyes to Mine, the

sad curve of your lips.

I’d set you free but

 

I’m just the

Animal in Cages.

  1. I really dig it man. As sad an existence this poor animal had, it was clear that he was witnessing an even more pitiful existence in us. Great job!
