Animals In Clothes

Animals in clothes I see
Driving cars or sipping tea
Animals in clothes I see
But they don't know what they are
These animals that drive a car?
Dress in clothes?
Sip the tea?
Just like you
Just like me
Very clever animals they'd be!

But they don't know what they are
These animals that drive a car
Dress in clothes
Sip the tea
Just like you
Just like me

So truly stupid animals they be
Not to realize what they are
Just because they drive a car
Sip the tea
Just like you
Just like me

Oh what stupid things we be
Not to realize what we are
Just because we drive a car
Dress in clothes
Sip the tea
So g-r-a-c-i-o-u-s-l-y!
You and Me

Oh what stupid things we are
Not to realize what we be
Animals that drive a car
Dress in clothes
Sip the tea
You and me

For if Mr Piggy had our brain
Ten fingers
Clothes, and a name
Wouldn't he be just the same?

Good to see a change from the romantic to the satiric and modern suburbia. Humour and parody, but with a deep self-questioning within. Retrospection leads to introspection,
Nice poem. We surely need to be differentiated from animals.
We do sin but, animals do not. Nice work.
Amazing write. Enjoyed reading and agree that self realization has become a bach bencher in the glam-up world. Thanks for sharing.10 points.
Style of writing is sweet. Nice reading.
