poetry by Charles Coleman Finlay
 
 

crocodile a pile o' rock
lions lying in the sun
giraffes half asleep

bears barely moving
languor, too, the kangaroos
placid go flamingoes

elephant so somnolent
gorillas pillars of snore and a
wolf in sleep's clothing

zooness snoozes,
and why are the animals so tame?
because all the running

crawling leaping screaming roaring
hopping flopping flying crying
children are wild
