SUCH CRUELTY

 

Look in wonder,

smile,

laugh;

a magnificent beast

trapped

for entertainment.

His face,

it shows

pure desperation,

to find his home,

the ice,

the snow.

Does he realize

that they will never

ever let him go?

Oblivious to

those enraptured beings,

too young to understand

quite what it is

they’re seeing.

He’ll dive,

he’ll swim,

he’ll search some more

before the need for air

will drag him to

concrete

once more.

Does he dream of snow?

Of the Arctic wastes?

Look at his face

and if you have any empathy

you will know.
