Classic Novels

Whether they are
In our living room
Or we are in theirs

Animals are our teachers

The dog that wears
Its heart on its sleeve
The cat with a mind
As mysterious
as the sea

The elephants who
Help each other
The cheetah, as swift
As a Maserati

To lose one to extinction
Is like losing
The sole draft
Of a classic novel
Should the computer crash

And we have no back up

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
