Dumb Animals

Just because we talk to the animals
There's no need to call us loopy
Most of them are aching for conversation
To tell us when they're feeling poopy

Ask 'em about us silly humans
With our conflicts and stupid old wars
Bet they'll give you a real earful
And bestow a dumb people award

Animals seem to just know the secret
For living side by side with each other
Of course they actually have their predators
But don't go round killing their brothers

Every time we talk to these animals
We learn more about acting civil
Seems these dumb animals as they are called
Don't tolerate none of this drivel

So keep talking to these so called dumb animals
They can teach us a thing or two
Bout how to get along with our fellow man
And not kill all our brothers in the zoo!

    Loved much because you have used the word "silly humans". I too feel that animals kill one at a time, but we kill uncountable by using weapons with in a nano second. We are much more dangerous than them. Dumb animals are much more true than human beings on this earth. Thanks for your comment on my write. Loved always, bl

    Animals definately bring out the softer side of us... Maybe we should be Their pets instead of the other way around.

    A fun way of dealing with a serious topic. Now when my wife calls me an Animal I can take it as a compliment!
