Sparkling Sunny Days

Remember sparkling sunny days

When skin turned to gold

And creatures’ scales shed.

How slimy, slithering snakes

Wrapped their lethal bodies

Round their prey,

Like supper prayers of obese pigs.

Like horror dreams of traffic deaths.

Remember sparkling sunny days

When empty skins ran wild

And popcorn children ceased to smile

How alligators with their razor teeth and ardent claws

Gouged their victims like Napoleon troops,

And how the movie shows painted the scene

For the universe to look through.
