Ode to a Lizard – Part 2
Lizard on the floor
Lizard, lizard on the floor,
It’s summer – Don’t tell me you are here to carry on your ancestors’ lore?
Lizard (of the new generation):
Certainly I am.
Like every wanna-be powerful,
And otherwise frowned upon clan,
I carry forth the name of mine.
I have a global-domination plan.
Yes, you had spotted me
While I was stealthily sliding
Outside your room and I must say
You had shrieked in a manner unspeakably whiny.
Destiny had already whispered to you
Despite your efforts I would
Eventually land in your room
Closed doors won’t deter me, actually nothing could.
So when you entered your room today,
And saw me perched on the wall,
You shouldn’t display so much shock,
Haven’t you yet figured that I have our famous “Lizard’s gall”?
And guess what, I am one of the adventurous Generation Z!
I have the most unpredictable behaviour.
Unlike my predecessors, I don’t fear humans,
Now you definitely need a saviour.
I am so tiny and quick
You have never met any of my kind
I will trick your eyes
And incessantly creep across your mind.
