I just went to the Zoo.

My son was in a land of wonder.

Great day.

But there was a moment where this old orangutan came up to the glass, old orange pressed his face near me and stared into my eyes.

I sat there for yonks while idiots babbled and took pictures, while people mocked this great being. I sat there for yonks looking at this great ape-soul, this great ape-soul looking at this idiot human ape.

I think we were both thinking the same thing.

What the fuck are you doing here?

On the other side of the zoo the rhinos and I had a prefect synthesis, big horns and lazy days in the mud.

Finally, might I add, never play poker with a Cheetah.

I look into the eyes of creatures, domestic or wild and marvel that people who believe in the soul think that only mankind has a soul.

Most animals I have known were better practicing humanists than most people I know.



Someone told me
It's all happening at the zoo.
I do believe it,
I do believe it's true.

Mmmmm. Mmmmm. Whoooa. Mmmmm.

It's a light and tumble journey
From the East Side to the park;
Just a fine and fancy ramble
To the zoo.

But you can take a crosstown bus
If it's raining or it's cold,
And the animals will love it
If you do.
If you do, now.


Something tells me
It's all happening at the zoo.
I do believe it,
I do believe it's true.

Mmmmm. Mmmmm. Whoooa. Mmmmm.

The monkeys stand for honesty,
Giraffes are insincere,
And the elephants are kindly but
They're dumb.
Orangutans are skeptical
Of changes in their cages,
And the zookeeper is very fond of rum.

Zebras are reactionaries,
Antelopes are missionaries,
Pigeons plot in secrecy,
And hamsters turn on frequently.
What a gas! You gotta come and see
At the zoo.
At the zoo.
At the zoo.
At the zoo.
At the zoo.
At the zoo.
At the zoo.
At the zoo.

What I know, is that if I come back as a monkey or an ape and they stick me in a zoo, I'm going to wait for the kindergarten classes to come by and then start polishing my sword (if you know what I mean).

Let the newly minted teacher explain to the kiddies what I'm doing.

That'll teach 'em.

Gay.
