The beast that shakes the tiger’s cage
And stirs gorillas into rage,
Who loads the straw on camel’s back
And goads the lions to attack.
Who throws the dregs of KFC,
Pulls faces at the chimpanzee
And finds in every petting zoo
The chance to pinch a chick or two.
Who locks away in fenced-in void
The species that it first destroyed.
The beast that should be in a pen
We call it Homo Sapien…
The zoo is now closed.
