Welcome to the jungle

Welcome to the jungle, friends

welcome scavengers,

welcome predators,

welcome ungrateful beasts.

welcome free birds of which I so aspire.


Welcome flowers and cats.

Welcome ladybug.

Today we open our rainforest,

and here are the rules:



How you do and what you do,

do it because you can.

you, friends, are only animals;

what can be expected?

So starve, feast, live.


there are no laws, no courts.

you are only animals.

i wish you knew that.
