Tennoji Zoo

It was in the Tennoji Zoo
Watching the lions
Your weight on my shoulders
Pushing my third & fourth vertebrae together
Conforming me to average height
Screaming boys in baseball caps
With plastic swords
Chubby girls in Barbie shirt
Walking after mothers
I knew we'd have to leave
This country that put itself
Back on the road to war
