O, What a Circus

The old man dreamt of the lions
The lions dreamt of lunch
The old man liked lions well-caged
Those lions liked the old man a bunch
A bunch
Of lunch
On which
To munch
The old man owed much to the lions –
His whole career –
But he had a hunch
If the lions called in the debt
He’d be the original credit crunch

    Great blog post! I really enjoyed how the poem is a metaphor for the older generation’s connection with the younger generation, and their fear of being replaced. It really made me think about the way generations interact with each other. I’m curious to know, what inspired you to write this piece?
