Zoo Animal – Written Wednesday 31st 2012 (Aged 37)

Zoo Animal

bored of boredom
bored of people talking to me
as i am thick
bored of the zoo animal
i am presumed to be
as they poke me with a stick
just set us all free
and someone said, as my hope –
was almost dead,
i am a, ‘mouthy cow’,
indicating they they were confidently led
yet somehow,
it was impossible to value what she said
bored of the boring
and listening to spouting rhetoric
that never means a thing
why do we accept this,
sure we should just do something
bored of boredom
