Lounge Lizards

Lounge Lizards

Leaping lizards

Lounge in the sun

Basking in the glory

Of the day’s bright

Orange glow

Contemplating low on

Food, procreation,

And the fine art of living

With their mouths

Open wide and eyes shut

The earth turned

As their human

Friends sinned

Wondering how much Money they’ll win

As they take a spin

At the roulette table

After an afternoon quickie

As the hours tick by

Sometimes we need to be Picky!

Rather amusing and I can imagine what Gary Larsen's drawings were like!

Interesting thoughts - how often we must stand condemned by the watchers of the natural world!

Great flow of 'wonder what will come next?'; you built up quite a sweat of how society is, then, proved you know what and who you are and put it down in fine style! Love it!
