Art and the philosophy of life

The last of the decorations are down and the Poetry Club just finished their readings…

POETRY...BY CHICKLET MARIE

poetry
is the way to tell a story
in a few words
they have to be the right words
and the timing has to be perfect
birds are wonderful poets
because most of them
can fly

THE NEW YEAR…BY CHICKLET REED

humans as a species
are heartless
cruel
and deadly
stay away from them
if you value your life

CATS…BY MISS KITTY GRAY PAWS

cats are perfect
there’s nothing they can’t do
if they want to
but only then
because we never do anything
we don’t want to do
even for treats
or pets
but at The Coop
things are different
and we all pitch in
and do what needs to be done

A GUINEA PIG’S TALE…by Ken

some say that I’m not aggressive enough
not brave enough
that I’m small
and fearful
I suppose that’s true
after all
I’m very small
which makes everything else
very big
but at The Coop
everyone tells me that I am a hero
an important part of the group
they think I’m a perfect Guinea Pig
and sometimes
because of their trust in me
I think I can do anything

BATS…BY MIDNIGHT

I think we should all get along
there’s no point to all this fighting
the earth doesn’t belong to us
it’s a thing of its own
we’re fortunate she lets us live on her
and instead of thanking the earth
for letting us be here
we destroy her
humans
we don’t know what to do with humans
we don’t know why they’re here
why they kill and eat everything
how can we understand them
it’s a new year
but what’s really going to change

LIFE…BY CHICKLET NORA (on the wire)

I love everyone
I love sunshine
and rainbows
and corn bread
and parties
and naps
and new eggs
and all kinds of other things too

TWEETS

I wish you could all fly
it’s a wonderful thing
you can see so much
but we’re all made
to be who we are
so we should be happy
with that
and write poetry
because it’s good for you

And that’s the contribution of the Poetry Club
