Animal Symbolism

The animals got together

And tried to decide

Which one should be

The perfect symbol for mankind.

“I’m a symbol of wisdom,”

Bragged the Owl.

“I’m a symbol of truth and strength,”

Explained the lion.

“I’m a symbol of kindness and gentleness,”

Said the lamb.

Soon all the other animals

Joined in the debate.

“It’s a good thing animals

Don’t have to go to work

Or school or anything,”

Observed one outsider.

“Or they’d be in big trouble

Seeing as how

They’re always

Arguing about this.”

Finally they arrived at a

Much needed conclusion.

“Since man needs all our qualities,”

Said the Owl in his wisdom,

With which one and all agreed,

“We’ll all pose together

For the official photo.”
