I had a friend who said nature is grand.
From the tallest mountains to grains of sand.
From the great bones of Tyrannosaurus rex.
To the slender beauty of giraffes long necks.
I do agree, some things are amazing,
But it does good to do some close appraising.
The necks of giraffes are also used for fighting,
Swatting away at others, violent, writhing.
It’s quite hilarious seen the first time,
Not just great, grandiose and sublime.
Then there’s the way that dogs drag their butts,
Every single dog, not just mangy mutts.
There’s some stuff that’s downright creepy,
Assassin bugs and wasps that make you sleepy.
And the fact that animals don’t care if you die,
You’re food or a threat to fox or a fly.
I don’t mean to rain on his parade,
But a flawed outlook won’t come to your aid.
