Tale #143: The Emperor’s Zoo

The animals and the people meet
no bars nor walls between their feet
Such are the rules
of the Emperor’s zoo

A gibbon shares a cup of tea
With a princess from across the sea
Such are the joys
of the Emperor’s zoo

A lion roars
a child dies
Such are the perils
of the Emperor’s zoo
