A poem for tired mornings

Standard
If I were a box
I would be full of space
and that space would be
faster than Gary.
I don’t know any Garys
but I think it’s still true
that this space would be really quite fast.
It would swim with the camels
and cry with the bees
it would paint with enamel
and argue with fleas.
except that space does none of those things.

A song for Tardigrades

Standard

to be read with great enthusiasm by early 80’s rock band

Echiniscus_L

Tardigrade!
You are wet, but you are not a beeeeaaar
Tardigrade!
You are mossy, but you’re not a piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig
Tardigrade!
And probably not a very good peeeeet
[drum solo]
Tardigrade!
You can live almost anywhere
Tardigrade!
Like volcanos and icebergs and even in spaaaaace
Tardigrade!
You got good grades ‘cause you were never tardyyyyy
Tardigrade!
You are half a millimeter at moooooost
Tardigrade!
And for you, I wrote a very short soooong
Tardigrade!
(the best animal)
Tardigrade!
(probably not a very good pet)
Tardigrade!
(has eight legs)
Tardigrade!
(cryptobiosis)
Tardigrade.
