OH MAN




The tiger, walking on the world, declared:
Oh man, you are so many miles behind.
The eagle, in the air, said that he shared
This point of view and added: Man, you're blind -
I wonder if you'll ever learn to see.
The whale gave a monumental sigh,
Which signified he could not but agree,
And blew a question mark against the sky.
Read: Why, oh why, oh man, do you not hear?
This whale music will not be surpassed.
Our art, say cat and eagle, has no peer.
From shark to flea, oh man, you are outclassed.
Yet you think, because you know the letter,
That your hooligan species is better.
