“I am not a Guillemot!” said the Guillemot

“I am not a Guillemot!” said the Guillemot.

“I am The Guillemot!

the last one standing,

flying, swooping, anding;

and after me there will be

no other.

I have no partner

to be a mother

to our chicks;

so when I’m gone,

it’s, ‘Fiddlesticks!’

The very last Banana

(The very last Dodo Banana)

It was the very last;

but, little did the banana know it –

having not read this poem,

written by a poet.


And, like the Dodo before,

once the last one was gone,

there wouldn’t be any more.

Words Don’t Come Easy.

Words Don’t Come Easy.

Words don’t come easy;

and, like Pandas,

this is one of the main reasons

for why they are becoming extinct;

that, and their natural habitats being drastically reduced by the cutting down of the Brain Forests where Words have traditionally been grown from a long time ago (time immemorial, as it would have been).

Along with the Grammarless Groves and the Punctuational-Free Prairies, Words are destined to become mere exhibits in dusty cases within abandoned libraries.
