The Docent at the Zoo


The lady in the peach cloche hat
leads the rest of us
around the rhino into better light.

She leads us to the guardrail
at the supper hour to watch
the keeper reach inside

the large glass case.
She wants us all to watch the rat
delight the python

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
