In the Poetry Zoo


In The Poetry Zoo

In a cage

At the back

Of the zoo

Is a mythical beast 

(Allegedly, the last remaining one in the world)

It is a specimen of – in it’s Latin name – Vulgaris Poeta 

(Or, in layman’s terms

The popular poet)

He is a sad and lonely creaturePining for a mate

And a decent ryhme

Yet, he doesn’t know it.
They are thinking of closing the zoo

As it’s unfair on the inmates to be so confined.

I think that the poet

May have become institutionalised

Or, they may find

That he could even have

Lost his mind.
