giraffes going extinct
with their long fucking necks
and goofy grins
they clearly they had to go
were not producing
were failing to contribute
to GDP or tourist dollars or to their own resistance
but clearly big winners in the market for hacked up fucking giraffy parts
no-one will miss
their long fucking necks
and their goofy fucking grins
and the way they loll about, caring for their young and eating leaves and grass and bugs
and doing other fucking giraffy things
like running through national parks
like running for their fucking lives
and what precisely do we fucking care
about their long fucking necks
and their goofy fucking grins
and their fucking yellow and their fucking brown
and their fucking buck teeth
masti-fucking-cating all that fucking roughage
and their swishy fucking tails
and their saucer fucking eyes
and their goofy fucking grins
their goofy fucking grins
and their sad fucking faces
and humans too fucking humans
humans can be the fucking worst
with our blank fucking eyes
watching
kind of.
watching
kind of.
with our blank fucking eyes
watching
kind of.
it all shake down
it all shake
fucking
down
