Animals Aren’t We


It’s all a game mused marginalised yeti

Animals aren’t we

Food, water, procreation and shelter

Necessities all, rest just padding

They short term fix of comfort, till dwindling rush abates

Moving onto next misguided existential purchase

Bizarrely, expecting a long-standing misery solution.


In globe where happiness sold with prefix ‘i’

There is not ‘i’ in contentment, unless misspelt

There is ‘i’ in misguided, foolish, addiction, possessions and delusional

What brings long-term fulfilment, queries proletariat?

What’s worth of keeping up with the Jones’?

Their discontentment akin to yours

Only further fiscally challenged by thy folly.


Should the Jones’ role models be?

Should not the genuinely happy be sought for thy redemption?

Contentment a chalice well concealed

Thought required uncovering the veiled cup

Edify the misguided on strategy spend

As conclusion of sonnet my priority now

While I procure magic beans for our haggard old cow.
