Hail to Thee!
Hail to thee, oh mammal of a man! – lunky, hairy,
corpulent and loud – cloudy-minded –
grandly undistinguished save for your broad
belching animal reminder that we are
biology: the spawn of all the span of all preceding
species which commanded us to be the primates
on whose stage you take your sweaty
and unwitting stand – stretching out your hands –
bellowing to God to send a ragtime band down
from the sky – proud without a thought for why.
