Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie ~ Photo Challenge #360 #Poetry

Yuuki Morita

There are days when I feel like a wild dog

Ready to devour anything that gets in my way

I am the silver back gorilla, king of my own urban jungle

I am expected to have eight arms

Like the octopus, to get the workload done

I try blending in like the chameleon

I feel the slow plod of the rhinoceros baked in the sun

This is the menagerie I call my mind

With bull frogs calling, late into the night

Still, I sleep with the silence of the lambs…
