word origin

a student
from a distant village
seeking to learn
from bapa dola
entered his hut
asking
how the birds
of the jungle
came by their name
bapa dola
tells him
all creatures
were named
by man
even the gods
were
named
by man
and
many of the gods
were
created
by man

puzzling the rainforest frog in the yard…

oh i’m certain
there ain’t no global warming
cuz i read in the church bulletin
it said
quite clearly
that god would
take care of us
so how could there be
global warming
but
some things
are startin’
to
bother me
like all those fires
and floods
all over the world
and why i’m
seeing creatures
in my neighborhood
that usually live
way down south
but
i’m not worried
well maybe
a little
concerned
but lord knows
well
at least
i hope she does
