Tired

Of trying to keep them
All in cages
The carnivores
Herbivores
Omnivores
They pace back and forth
Eyeing me
Demanding to be
Let out
But how can I trust them?
I can’t

All I can do
Is warn the herbivores
Herd mentality people!
Watch out for the hungry
Looking wolves
Tigers
Bears
So many meat eaters
You guys have to stick together
Use the collective
No man left behind
But I am afraid
They will forget

So I keep the cages locked
And pace
Late into the night
Longing for freedom
For them/for me
Knowing there is
None.
