Animals Incorporated

Living in the city
The only animals I see
Live in cages at Animals Incorporated
Alligators and crocodiles asleep in tubs
Warmed through winter by electric heaters
Lesser pandas in wire cages
Who’d escape in a day
If their feeders stopped coming
In 20 years we’ll all be asking
If they’re real or cloned
Silent coelacanth, perch and tropic nematodes
Gap mouth guppies in coffee table aquariums
Living lives in small boxes far from nature
To rent nature to people living in small boxes
