Animal FarmHuman rule;
So harsh, so cruel;
With whips and guns and little food,
Happiness is seldom found any place around;
Down on Manor Farm.
Old Major came and told us all,
How to make our world at peace;
Expell mankind and claim the farm;
Soon enough the animals revolted,

I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging

I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
