Daughter of a Zoo-Keeper

...I dreamt that I was
the daughter
of a zoo-keeper
and this one time
I forgot to feed the shark 
so with his razor-sharp
teeth, he leapt up
from the water 
and bit my arm off-
the tiger scoffed
and the the grizzly bear 
just stared
blankly at me. 
It was the weirdest 
and when I awoke 
I couldn't seem 
to shake off the feeling
that I had forgotten to redeem
myself for something
that I had done...
