Before Humans Ruled The Earth

Written for:  Poetics Aside 2018 April PAD Challenge – Day 24
Two-For-Tuesday – Write a Roundelay or an anti-form poem.

Once upon a time, long ago
before humans ruled the earth,
animals roamed freely you know.
Each four-legged creature had worth.
No one minded if you were slow
or fast–that was determined at birth.

Animals roamed freely you know.
Each four-legged creature had worth.
Banana Runners raced to and fro,
Moosemice never cared who was first.
No one minded if you were slow
or fast–that was determined at birth.

Banana Runners raced to and fro,
Moosemice never cared who was first.
Porcupigs kept pace with their toes,
Girrafins loved being immersed.
No one minded if you were slow
or fast–that was determined at birth.

Porcupigs kept pace with their toes,
Girrafins loved being immersed.
In a land of moonlit rainbows,
rang the bells of enduring mirth.
No one minded if you were slow
or fast–that was determined at birth.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
