Poetry for Extinct Beasts

lizard beast

Behold the Greater Spotted Paraphrase
Which moves in stealthy and beguiling ways
And it is said it is a beast that man can’t see
Because of its camouflage and complex geometry
And fantastic as this beast may be
It will spend its entire life in a single tree
Or so we think, but do not know
Because despite chopping down all the trees
We have not seen it
Which is a bitter blow
As it now appears the beast
Is probably extinct
And we might have seen it
If we had not blinked
Nature is like that

  1. Ooh, it’s the Considerably Dappled Rendering. See what I did there Mr Z? I paraphrased the paraphrase…er…well it made more sense in my head…


    1. My poetry always makes more sense in my head Miss Lily, but the world does not. OOOooooo what a lovely sunny day it is here, I will go and do things since it seems cyberspace grows quiet and weary of me.
