I Stomp My Feet. I Am A Giraffe.

I Stomp My Feet. I Am A Giraffe.

A Poem by Rufio The Jedi

 

The giraffe bends his neck into the sky

And sips coffee from the clouds

His yawn floats a 747 a little higher

While the pilot announces

Unexpected turbulence

The pandas in the back of the plane

Think the gorillas stink

The gorillas

Don’t

Really

Care

They’re sipping premium mango juice

As they rest their feet on the gooses

The plane heaves a cough

The passengers buckle their seatbelts

The giraffe closes his window

And reluctantly falls asleep

I really liked this, excellent use of metaphor.

Very original. Very unique. Even George Orwell would be jealous for this piece.
Loved it! It was entertaining.

Inventive, but I'm not sure I get the deeper meaning.
Not even sure that there is one.
All I know for sure is that this was entertaining.

whimsy is a good word, but less childish, but cunning, if anybody still uses that word but me.

love how whimsical this is. the idea of all the animals together in one airplane makes me so entertained. next time i take a flight tho, dont wanna be a goose. or a gorilla. or a panda smelling a gorilla. giraffe it is. unless we got wombats up there. clearly.
