Friday Flash 55 ~ Some Observations




Some Observations
on the Natural Sciences


Tigers
sleep best when fed,
with other
tigers in their bed.

Fish
that fly
try but can’t
stay in the sky.

Bats
avoid ships,
and look like mice
with wings and lips.
 
Dinosaurs?
Just bones
we use for
 monster clones

All of these
I understand.
The one I can’t,
it's name is man.

  2. ... I sleep better fed with someone in my bed too! Does that mean I'm a tiger? :)

    A huge difference.
    Loved your 55 My Friend.
    (Especially the ones that I only have to read once to understand because of my Non-Poetic mind.)
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

    @G-Man--I'm always thinkin of ya, Galen. Sparing your mind the strain so you can concentrate on the culinary expertise needed for whatever large mammal you will no doubt spend the weekend grilling or making into jerky.
