Animal Instincts

Animal Instincts

Your presence noticeable
With looks and charm
Engaging those around you, but,
you know that I know who you really are

Ignoring my icy stare you laugh
maybe just a little too loud
so I might hear you having a good time
But that is wasted on me

Sly as a fox and twice as cunning
Strategic in circling your prey
You will likely ensnare an unsuspecting hen
from the coop this night

Your antics are predictable
And yes, my view of you is negative
To me you are, and always will be,
just a big, fat zero

Am I old fashioned
Or an old fashionista
Is my lifestyle obsolete
Or is it just a feature
Are my thoughts archaic
My language out of vogue
I like to think I’m hip
And I like to go a bit rogue
Too many people
Stuck in the past
With outdated ideologies
So don’t bother to ask
Move with the times
Keep your thoughts tamed
Styles come and go
But your integrity maintained
Practice acceptance of all
No room for outdated thinking
We live in a global society
It has no sign of shrinking
