Captivity


Animals sought after for the capture,
to be displayed for those that paid.
Looking sad mostly, not knowing why.

Although treated well while living to tell
through the observation of their situation.
Looking sad mostly, not knowing why.

In from the wild to please a child,
not independent but depending to exist.
Looking sad mostly, not knowing why.

Mostly walking, little run is only brief fun.
Somewhat confined to be defined.
Looking sad mostly, not knowing why.

Trying to communicate their current state
unable to express the volume of distress.
Looking sad mostly, not knowing why.

Opportunities are mistaken but still taken
and the instinct to return is not unlearned.
Looking sad mostly, not knowing why.
