I Wonder how the Animals Feel! #Poem

I wonder how the animals feel!
When they enter our gardens to catch their crumbs,
Do they think we await them and want them to come?

I wonder how the animals feel!
When they hear our clocks chime and the noises we make,
Do they beg us to stop, for goodness sake!
Do they pray for a mute button on the remote
And wish we were still, silent like their fur coat?

I wonder how the animals feel!
When they see all our selling and marketing stuff,
Do they ask themselves, “When will enough be enough?”

I wonder how the animals feel!
Do they vision a world without people and places
So teeming with ghoulish, uncool social graces?
Would it brighten their day if we all stopped to listen
To our wonderful sky as it gleams and it glistens?

I wonder how the animals feel!
When the time comes to ring in a shiny new year,
Do they question if things will be different from here?

I wonder how the animals feel!
When we smell fetted odors that make us go “Phew!”
Do they want to exclaim, “You smell bad to us, too!”
Do they point and react to our oft foolish ways?
Or go shaking their heads through the rest of their day?

I
Wonder
How
The animals
Feel!
