Nirvana for animals

By Andrew Ballard

A three masted schooner 

with a Giraffe at its helm 

sails through the night air

a Rhinoceros stops at a red light

hot chocolate flows from a fountain

as moonbeams reflect 

on Pink Flamingos riding their bikes

a waddle of Penguins wait at the Zebra crossing

Hyenas drinking coffee 

laugh at their own jokes 

Elephants trumpet 

heralding the Lion King

this is  Nirvana for Animals

while Humans an endangered species 

have fallen from sight.
