The Spoils
The Spoils

As if lions wouldn't build 
abattoirs and gas chambers
if they were truly King
of the jungle.

As if Hyenas wouldn't laugh 
their way to the White House
once they'd cancelled the lion
out of sheer annoyance.

As if Crocs wouldn't corner
the market on fresh water
and charge the thirsty
who'd come to drink.

As if another great ape wouldn't 
have made the same mess 
of the world as we,
had they beat us to the spoils.
I'm sure the Crocs would charge an arm and a leg for that water, but I think I'd prefer they get water bottling rights over Nestlé.
