A fat roasted chicken
Bloated by injected hormones.
Kim Kardashian in a negligee
Catching the lustful eye.
The elephant in a Buddhist temple,
A tusker so mammoth in size.
The whale on the beach,
That carcass touching the eye.
In this world of large things
We strive to be larger than life,
Fact not myth. And looking out of the window
I see a little house fly,
Lurking on the window sill,
Unaware that a gecko was prowling
About to mouth it.
So the small, enters the belly of the big,
The big is swallowed by the bigger
The very big, almost the superlative – Homo sapiens,
The wise one, as proclaimed in a scientific name,
Worships the biggest by far – god.
