Some
Say that
Poetry
Is dumb, that they
Don’t know why people
Would write, don’t understand,
that there are too many rules, laws,
Restrictions on what they
Write,(elephant) They
Cannot fill form
(giraffe) They
should just
(Duck)
Be more
Creative
(Lion) Just write
Their thoughts (hyena)
And see what (skunk) happens
They might just surprise themselves
And others (hippopota-
mus) Maybe they should
Just change like their
Ancestors
(monkeys)
Did
Take chances
Risk it all
(Albatross) Birds
Were dinosaurs once
But evolved, survived
(Dodo) unlike some. Lizards
Are still around, (gecko)
Although they almost
Died quite a bit
Ago, (penguins)
Manage
To Survive
All this is
Possible, thanks
To a large bang,
An explosion of
Massive proportion of
(A rock) matter in the vast
Nothing that became space
That and a rock hit
Earth, creating
The moon and
Lunar
Things
Cycles
Tides and things.
(Oceans) Water,
Slow destruction of
Land, (Math, simple really)
Like a sine wave or just waves
Eroding beaches (limestone
For caves) Patiently
changing landscape
Waiting for
The next
Time
The world
(Dies) Goes BOOM!
