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.
