Dumb Animals



In the midst of all the turmoil in the world A simple reconnect with the past Can make the crap that we constantly hear Seems so unimportant real fast So unimportant in the overall scheme The only thing that matters is love With everything else we're forced to endure Love's bigger than all else above Love of nature where creatures abound We're just part of the overall scene Soon we'll realize as intelligent as we are Must be missing a certain gene A gene these so called dumb animals possess Which allows them to coexist There's a lot these dumb animals can teach us Wouldn't that be a crazy twist So I ask you, who are the real dumb animals It's us, it's definitely us humans Maybe one day we'll get as smart as these animals And be more than intelligent cavemen © Jack Ellison 2013

    The dumb animals are up in arms at being called dumb! Boy have you started something around here. No! Dragon! That does not include you... There's another name for you... LOL... You tell me, Silly Dragon!... Still doesn't get it... Oh Well! and outside of our neat little world... the coexisting part... usually means someone's going to be lunch... Gee Jack... Coffee needed, MUCH?... LOL... Having fun with you. What animal are you eating for lunch? Dragon says... NOT DRAGON! You got him worried!
