Majestic Orangutan

Poem By Cynthia Grier

Oh majestic orangutan
it has been years since I saw you last
I remember your eyes well
such eyes! mirrors glimmering sadness
you are on display for the gawkers
smug in their superiority
you are so much more than they
could ever be
man, that greedy beast!
not fit to be called ape
I remember when our eyes met
eyes became tongue
you spook eloquent
touching my soul
crying out I pounded against your glass
of injustice, shattering!
each shard reflecting your plight
one day we will meet again
majestic orangutan
you will sing your song and
I will listen into the far reaching night
searching out your beauty
without greed or strife
