Another Day in the Ark

Another day in the ark,
and all the critters are stirring.
Every creature in here
wonders what is occurring.
Trapped inside
and distracted by life,
we are overwhelmed
by our strife.
Sometimes we see the windows.
Sometimes we see the sky.
Sometimes we spread our wings
and dream that we can fly.
Sometimes we even notice
the door across the room,
but then the lock and barricade
bring back the gloom.
Watching and waiting
for the Captain to unlock,
we continue to dream
of the day we dock.
