Bred in Captivity

There was a fuss
A to-do
The day the animals escaped from the zoo
There was dissent
And much disapproval
At the suggestion of the zoo’s removal
Bred in captivity
Unequipped for urban survival
Freedom was good but not a valid revival
Liberty is best kept for the already free!
Nets and drugs might be given a try
But never guns: that caused an outcry!
