“WONDERS!” a poem a.k.a.: “Cloistered Positions!” February 5, 2019 (Tuesday)
While THEY-were-in – their secluded, and-protected?-“cloistered state,” Watching TV – sipping beers – and hoping on the hopeful fate, Of favorite teams – and , of course, in-vest -o- ments, A ROAD RUNNER ran-right-into-our-yard!!! with hardly a-lick of sense, And grabbed a couple bread crumbs! Some that I had placed, In The Yard for “the-usual-suspect”-birds, who also came and graced, THESE PREMISES! Yet, I wondered: “Who shall ever see, Wonders! such as this and that – Well, at least – maybe me!? And IN AN INSTANT, my-road-runner’s gone! Perhaps-never-again – will she bless our lawn! BUT, WAIT! THERE! a praying mantis! shelling some pecans, And a baby skink – and an EXTINCT hummingbird!!!! not-seen for-many e-ons! Plus, OTHERS! all (amazingly) “extinct!” crawled! and-flew! around-our-grass, While-cloistered-folks-did-work-&-worry, hoping-to-better-“their-class!” They’ll check their phones, I think! to -enhance their wireless strat-e-gies, As wonders all around them, scamper – on the periph-er-ies, Of our property – and-on-all “World Stage Menageries,” Doing strange, miraculous things-and-speaking! Forgotten!? “DISTANT PROPHECIES!”
Hi, I’m a baby Bandicoot, I’m cute right?
Well I was.
I died today. I died because a cat decided I’d be fun as a chew toy.
I’m dead because people think I don’t matter enough to keep their cats indoors or contained.
I’m endangered but that doesn’t matter either because your cat REALLY wants to go outside and you feel cruel keeping them in.
But why is my death not cruel?
Your cat doesn’t hunt you say?
I say otherwise.
Please, don’t let my friends die too. Keep your cats inside, save our endangered wildlife and me.
