Did you catch my post Thursday about the Oklahoma City Zoo in The Lost Ogle?
“Ah, yes, but what about the critters? The elephants, the giraffes, the sea lions, the wild African dogs, the okapi, the gorillas, the chimpanzees, the cheetahs, the regal lion staring down at the human spectacle from his perch on top of a manmade rock formation created for his benefit by God-fearing Oklahomans?”
So what about them critters? How are the imprisoned animals doing these days? Take a minute or three today and check it out while the boss isn’t hovering around the cubicle or your office. Think about a zoo.
Speaking of critters, what about that Ward 2 Oklahoma City Council race? The election is March 3, which by my astute mathematical calculations means, well, it’s coming up real soon, folks, real real soon. Ward 2 voters need to think about a zoo AND this important election, and I absolutely know they’re smart enough to think about two things at once. Maybe even three things. Four? Can we go that far?
Read about my take on this important election Monday right here on Okie Funk.
Meanwhile, ponder this:
“Think about a zoo. Are we all in our own zoos in one way or another, in our enclosures as people look on and judge us or feed us or don’t feed us, trapped in spaces we’ve been put in by our circumstances? Are we really free to roam, to follow dreams, to do what we really want to do, to say what we want? Do zoos say more about us than the animals we pretend to adore as we ruin our rainforests and burn the planet to death?”
