single jingle (a prayer for survival)

run rampant tarantulas
scrabble and scramble down
the scattering basset hounds
astound the 'round massed crowds
with hoary feats on hairy feets
aground agog
heading toward 
the roar of sound 
or inlet tide 
riding up the shore 
toward town
children drag families 
expound the merits of 
merpeople versus werepeople
and studies have since found
that minus the fur 
but plus the scales
you would be 
hard pressed to declare 
with any certainty
which was which 
when found
dead and flattened of life 
at the bottom
of a barrel
a river or thereabouts 
in sandy vicinities or parts 
nearby or around
