Life originated from the sea

Baby Stingrays giphy

When a creature crawled onto land

With one webbed hand.

The female biologist among them, stung

By the intimate kiss of a lizard’s tongue —

Slimed by Fronds 200

So green its scales of slimy latex —

Was repulsed by 1950’s sex.

What did such a creature represent

If not the spawning age of consent?

Or might this creature be something dark

From the past of a racist patriarch

Turner, outraged by diplomatic brinksmanship,

Blasted England with his “Slave Ship.”

When it came to political art, he set the tone,

Indicting the drowning of slaves from the Zong.

Perhaps the Gill-man was one of these,

Like Beloved, who crawled to Sethe’s knees,

BELOVED HAUNT 3650

A haunt of what Americans refuse to see:

Mass genocide paying capitalism’s fee.

Grab those 3D goggles and enter the Lagoon… if you dare!

 

 Because when it’s that good you have to sing about it!

 

Every creature has his day, but some have two!
