the desert squid is very rare
you’re not likely to find one’s lair
and if you do, but see a bear
you haven’t found the desert squid
“I just saw some birds!” said X to Y
“no you did not” said Y to X
and I never learned the truth
because they and I were walking in opposite directions
part of someone else’s conversation
and I thought
it could be a good starting point for a poem
but I forgot what it was
so I will pretend they were arguing about birds
It’s almost soon
I’m not making this up
here on this moon
where we all fall up
Rhyming up with up
just then was lazy
but it fit the facts
and this moon isn’t crazy
I have now woken up
and my memory’s hazy
I just did it again
do not sit on that daisy!
