nephew to the king

the smarmy slugslug

slogged his foes
with cruel insults
and verbal blows
which would be hard
to misconstrue…
good thing he only
had a few…
half of whom
did not do words —
the other half were birds
—¦—

 his insults paled
to uncle snail’s,
the king of slimy zingers
the slug was not
as erudite and surely no
punslinger
his conversations
fast dissolved
cuz he was less evolved
—Ω—

  1. I know I should be paying attention to your words, but photo won’t let go of me. What kind of critter is that? Slug, snail, make-believe whatsit? The biologist in me must know.
