The Zoo

We are looking in
They are looking out

Children laugh and awe
Adults point and converse
No one pays attention not even the keeper

Look at their demeanor
Look at their eyes
Regardless of the room
Trapped, bound and caged

If you ever have been
Shackled, locked up and bound
Restrained where the mind wonders of freedom
You know the gaze
I’ve seen it in men
Same look I see today

Rationalize it how you will
Debate it
Though the education, the attractions and the dollar
Will remain to find an endless gaze at the zoo
