MLMM Wordle #241

Welcome to the MLMM Monday Wordle. Click here to join in


I try hard to forget the day someone snatched me from my home, where the water ran crystal clear, I had space and lofty perches, friends, family and natural beauty.
Now I feel a concrete sidewalk under my feet, live in cramped conditions,  climb cold metal apparatus, and although not exactly in chains, the awareness of losing what I had, where I belong, and the search for solitude stays with me. Humans offer insincere platitudes, so dishonourable in their lack of understanding. I am a wild animal that needs to roam free and does not belong in a cage made of glass.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I agree with this one 100% ! Wild things should remain wild… I don’t understand the need to try to tame these non-domesticated animals. Turtles, frog, birds, not to mention the nutty people who want to have a cougar or leopard as a pet!!

    • A former boss and I always fancied walking down the High Street with a leopard and black panther. I think they are magnificent animals and should be free in their natural habitat.

  2. Amazing how you get so many prompt words into one well-written paragraph. Well done.

  3. So true! I cry for wild animals put in cages. Well done!
