animals on parade

animals on parade                           April 10, 2016
when did it get to be cool
to be willfully ignorant?
how can you love if you do not learn?

a donkey tried to teach the mice
but the mice could only hear hee-haw
elephants are afraid of mice
they to not want educated mice
so they build traps and buy cheese
the mice think the elephants are friends

this little mouse has a book
filled with the light of love
and Word of serving her enemies
she went to the cat
to serve him herself
but the cat
is tired of donkeys and elephants
stomping everything
so he
made friends with the mouse

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
