Behind Bars – Poetry

Behind bars we lay day by day,

Where people visit us if they pay.

They rattle the bars and always stare,

Its asif they don’t even stop to care.

Aslong as they get the perfect snap,

To post on Facebook with their chap.

They don’t worry about us waiting here,

They don’t look at the picture and see our tear.

Nobody hears and nobody see’s,

The loud cries of help that we plea.

So open your heart and take some action,

We are not just here for your own satisfaction.

We could have a life that is wild and free,

Just leave us in our habitat and let us be.

We don’t want to stay behind these bars,

Why is your life better than ours?
