(Varieties of Megafauna were common
until the arrival humans on the scene)
Don’t hold me to it.
I want to be different today
from what I was before.
Even the ground below,
that grand old mother earth,
has me bored to tears.
I’m like that fellow that Hercules beat
by holding him up in the air.
He’s the one I’d praise,
not that arrogant demigod,
trying to maintain the status-quo
by killing off those strangely built.
But to vary yourself
as well as what you do
seems really closer to the ideal.
Meanwhile, that’s what gets to me,
deep down in the gut.
For all I know, tomorrow’s today.
I can’t even blame it on the season.
Megafauna: e.g. megatherium
