the 11 of 12 given words:
dig bear dulls earth prosper spirit 
sacred years writing act breath

I don't dig this
I just can't bear it
It dulls my mind
We belong in the wilds
Why on earth is the bother

We need to prosper
That was the contention

But shoving us to be with humans
is not the spirit
We belong in the wilds
I'll say it again

It is sacred!
At least provide a wild environment
Like the Sea World where we were for years

The writing was on the wall
We were supposed to be progressive
To interact more with humans
To live like humans
To eventually take over the human race

We are expected to rule the world
We are allowed to take on a couple of humans as pets
Just as how they have been doing to us

Come to think of it
That is not a bad idea
Yes, that will be fun

Now I can breath easy
That will be the day!

  1. Dream on! (lol!!) ... an intriguing write :)

  2. "At least provide a wild environment"
    Turn about would be fair play, but alas!
    Fun, and too true.

  3. LOL. They can use humans as yard ornaments, as we do with them. This made me smile, Hank.

  4. That will be the day, indeed.

    Oh, and I always knew flamingos were whispering and gossiping about something. ;-D

  5. This reminded me of when I stayed in Las Vegas we stayed at the "Flamingo Hotel" quite a few of them in the grounds.
    Great verse Hank.


  6. haha sticking humans on the lawn would sure be a scary sight.

  7. Oh please; humans as pets? not another Planet of The Apes, no no.

    much love...
