My Family Is A Zoo

I found this in P's writing spiral.  

My family is a zoo.

My father is the bear,
Big and strong,
But also loving.

My mother is the tarantula,
With her unblinking eyes that see everything.
She waits for something smaller than her to come by,
Then eats it alive.

My younger brother is the small bird in the bird exhibit,
So small and shy and always ready to fly at a moment’s notice.

My youngest brother is the hippo.
He is strong and sturdy,
He will never back down from a fight.

My dog is the sea otter.
People stop by to say, “How cute!” and “Pretty!”

I’m the lion,
Drawing everyone’s attention and admired by all.
I am the main event that everyone comes to see.

My family is a zoo.
