[Beneath The Spin]

The mighty King of Beastshas met his prey,and this tender morsel’son the menu today;But his fearsome roarhits unhearing ears, andhis deadly fangsbites flesh that won’t tear,so the pending demographicof this exchange,alerts the kingthat his role has changed.

The mighty King wisheshe’d passed on this prey,but now he’s forced to continue;for he’s awakened the sleepingboa constrictor,and the monarchis now on the menu.

As he squirmed and wiggledand struggled for air,and pleaded with a boawho didn’t have ears,his last thought on Earthwent something like this -It was my arrogant hubristhat led to this fix.
