If I were an animal I would like to be
either a Lion, Tiger, or chimpanzee.
I would climb tall trees to get away
or run fast on the ground during the day.
I would roar very loud to make me be heard
chew bananas all day and run with the herd
I would teach my cubs to play and fight
sleep in the trees during the night.
I would try to teach man that we need to live
nurture my cubs and teach them to give,
keep away from the poachers who want us to die
build a fence so high they would have to fly.
If I was an animal I would leave man alone
never eat their flesh or lick on their bone
I would make them leave our forests to thrive
stop them caging us up pretending we're alive.
Education would start when man is a child
that animals must and need to survive in the wild
being kept in a zoo is cruelty in itself
just to keep the rich in the custom of wealth.
