14) A song for your own sake (1)


Elephant Show

Why are you tearing, my dearest elephant?

Isn’t it for winning a big applause from the live audience?

You know boogie, you know art painting and basketball tossing.

And you should be happy and in high spirits.

Rather than tangle and muddle, starving in the jungle

And this is for your own good.

To leave your mother at childhood

So that you can learn how to entertain from young age

All these is for your own sake

That is what they rake

Why are you tearing, my dearest peacock?

Isn’t it for winning a big applause from the live audience?

You know fan dancing and catwalk, turning here and there doing all sides walk

And you should be happy and in high spirits

Rather than waiting to be fed by strangers in your own niche

And this is for your own good

To leave the lonely park

Performing your fan dancing art

All these is for your own sake

That is what they rake

Why are you tearing, my dearest fowl?

Isn’t it for winning a big applause from the live audience?

You know how to fly and do Thai boxing

And you should be happy and in high spirits

Rather than searching food in the poor village

And this is for your own good

To be a good fighter and front-line protector

So that people get cheer up and thrill to see you being a terminator

All these is for your own sake

That is what they rake

Why are you tearing, my dearest silver lining shark?

Isn’t it for winning a big applause from the grand dinning hall?

You know the way to please our taste bud and fill up our deep stomach

And you should be happy and in high spirits

Rather than being a bloody flesh-eating machine, you ended up in fine dinning

And this is for your own good

To be a first class cuisine just to sacrifice your fins

So that people can boost their ego and swank their image

All these is for your own sake

Too bad, that is what they rake
