Transcript

  • They say it takes a mighty frame
    To truly feel great thirst...
    And their frame puts a whale to shame:
    These frames so fit to burst.
  • And hunger, I have heard it said,
    Takes hold when there is toil.
    And Veetan life seems overfed
    In labor... and its spoils.
  • The Veetan stomach goes for miles
    In belly laughs when filled
    But there are moments between smiles
    When aching hunger builds
  • And when it comes, it's not a toy,
    Not cute, not something dear:
    A Veetan eating is not joy
    But more like "abject fear."
  • - Seamus McCarthy
  • First human poet to watch a Veetan eat up close
  • Skitter: myaaaAH!
