the taxidermist (RE: taxidermy)

Cover Image

the taxidermist never took a taxi

he always drove his bike to work

that was one of his many quirks

professionally working with the beast

was a tradition his father had bequeathed

a profession everybody frowned upon

but it's also a job that needs to be done


his laboratory, to him, it's alive

lively and busy like a bee hive

he pets the fur

he can almost hear it purr

when he makes it a habit

to talk to the rabbit

when he works late on the wings of the owl

he can sometimes hear it howl


they can be immortal

that is his moral

the man, he is happy

though his life might be crappy


but sometimes he's just really lonely...
