WILDERNESS

Most of what was wild

Has been stamped out

Tamed

Controlled

 

Still I am told

There are wild things

Which brave the urban blight

Racoons

Snakes

Spiders

Rabbits

Coyote

All kinds of bugs

 

I am told there is one rat

For each citizen

In New York City

And of course

 

There are all kinds

Of wild things

Once called humans

Lose in the city

 

What is wild

Out of the ordinary

Those with a different point of view

Rare

Sacred

    Even and especially among the humans! Wonderful.

    Humans manifest wildness in may varied ways unlike animals bent on filling their stomachs. Brainy humans will plead cheat and kill even if they are not hungry!
