Reptilian Blood

Standard

Reptilian the blooded thing

Of cold so old and beady eyed

It forced from jaw

My opened mouth

To spew into this atmosphere

Its diffidence and stony heart

Went walking cross the floor

And sought a hiding hole for self

In which to dwell away

From sight I wish

I might know how

I birthed a thing so vile

From my lips to tell

The world that I too

Am from that historic race

Running still recessed within

My realm of possibility
