A zoo is like a circus, but without the theatrics.


At the circus:

The elephants stand on balls,

The tigers jump though hoops,

The bears ride tiny bicycles,

And the zebras stand in twos.


At the zoo:

The elephants stare at walls,

The tigers live in coops,

The bears live boring life-cycles,

And the zebras look recluse,


At the brink of reason:

From all that I have compiled,

Not one animal was beguiled.

And though I may sound like a child,

I think animals belong in the wild.
