Lyle the Future King of the Great Expanding Universe

Lyle, do you see? As cohesive as a newborn that don't need instructing (and all the tots in a line in front and behind) As adhesive as the duct tape wrapped around your torso As peaceful as your breathing when it stops The crack of a crack across your unblinking face like flies circling a mammoth Still Ex-Tinct there's no sense to it and there's no way around it String it up. Freeze it, cook it, and eat it The kid with the spear don't need instructing He took to it like a hammer, like a bridge, like an ant As natural as a killer As quiet underwater aesthetic yet prophetic a beautiful thing But there you stand, royal and aloof sans violence, sans volition toes curled, hands that quiver a mind for dreaming a heart for breaking This is your warning Watch your back cuz the tots have teeth
