A Language Barrier

An animal approached me
and tried to say something...
I didn't speak his tongue,
so I couldn't respond.

Loneliness beset him,
like a flame in the dark.
It occurred to me then;
I'm exactly like him!

Sounds like one of those two legged animals! Super poem Michael.
Very good, Micheal. It has so much social commentary for such a small piece. Yet proving, it is not the size that counts.
A bit like Americans and the British as they say.... divided by a common language? Clever title and content M. t x
