The posings of a poet.

JUNGLE TALK


TWO
            GIRAFFES
           DECIDED
                        TO TALK
            OF RELATIONSHIPS
                        WHILE
                                    ON
                                          A
                                                WALK

“THEY’RE LIKE TIGERS,”
            SAID THE FIRST,
                        “LURKING IN SECRET,
                                    THEY’RE THE WORST”

“MORE LIKE
            AN ELEPHANT
                        FELT BY
                                    THE BLIND
CAN’T TELL
                        THE TRUNK
                                    FROM
                        THE BIG BEHIND!”

THIS MADE THE FIRST
            LAUGH
                        ALOUD
WHICH DISTURBED
            THE SAVANNAH
                        CROWD

“THESE TWO GIRAFFES,”
            SAID
                        A PARAKEET,
“WILL
            HAVE TO
                        LEARN
                                    TO BE
                                                DISCREET”





HE WAS
                        IGNORED
AS THEY
                        TOWERED ABOVE
            AND
                        WENT ON
                                    TO TALK
                                                OF LOVE

“IT’S LIKE A MONKEY,”
            SAID THE ONE,
            “OVERACTIVE
                        AND
                                    OUT FOR FUN!”

“WHAT’S WRONG
            WITH THAT?”
                        SAID THE OTHER
THEY STOPPED
            AND LOOKED
                        AT ONE ANOTHER

“DO YOU BELIEVE
            YOU’LL
                        FIND
                                    WHAT’S TRUE?
FIND
            THE ONE
                        THAT’S MEANT
                                    FOR
                                            YOU?”

“PERHAPS I DO
            PERHAPS
                        I
                          WILL”
THEN THEY
            ENTWINED
                        AND FELT
                                    THE THRILL


COMPARING
            TO OTHERS
                        IS THE
                                    LESSER HALF
ALL THAT
            MATTERS
                        IS WHAT THINKS
                                    GIRAFFE
