Don't want to make a fuss,
Saw a earthworm watching us.
Insects hiding in pavement cracks,
Looking at us watching back.

Giving me such a fright,
there watching us day and night.
Nothing else we can do,
Apart from letting them watch us
In our human zoo. Now realising
The little critters are watching,
Me and you and you and you.

And there are more of them than us - even by weight. Maybe they are waiting for us clear off?

A nice one Alan

... and all the other beings resident in this zoo too! (Tongue in cheek!) Methinks there are some other beings observing us too - mostly in fear of the unthinking, unsympathetic traits of Homo Sapiens!
