Poetry Day: Animals in Our Minds

(Got to use one of my puzzle pictures again.  This poem was a silly one that used phrases involving animals.  I couldn’t get it that big, but it worked for me.)

We join the rat race
A loyal work horse
Dealing with the fat cats
With their shark grins
Pushed until dog tired
And hungry as a bear


At home we eat a horse
Regaining strength of ox
To have a whale of a time
With the social butterflies
Searching for our fish in the sea

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
