FREE FALLING by anonymous

Suddenly our shifting shape

Morphs into another arrogant ape

And from our Alpine canopy

Short falls become our destiny

Mountains and jungles share common floors

Where creatures poor and flightless lark

And canopy heights are beyond the snark

Of jealous eye and sabre tooth

And newly fattened, the ape has fallen

Ungenerous to less favoured fur

And now gripped and pinned by roots that bore

The self-serving life the floor abhors

The snake and tiger, rat and roach

Now feast upon the fallen fat 

A lesson how the mighty fall

When fortune favours the slimmer shape.
