No L

Salvaged Mammoths melt

in Stoli rocks,

*frozen *

in Simply Red buckets,


and Tusk plays in the background, naturally–

–until frosted glasses spill rehydrated


and who knew to try that?

Who deemed it expedient?

(you might wonder)

but to Hell with inquiring minds.

The quest for a heftier, emotional

stonewall to stockpile elephants resumes.

Since tame pachyderms

in Zoo conditions

live afraid, but still  stampede…

They still fell baby birds…

and Crush irreplaceable Mice.

while Mammoths, on the other hand,


overall impact.


Should it matter that critical

genomes have been lost?

Should that factor in?

Splicing spooked elephant genes

with Mastadon ice cubes

> seems iffy <

The irreplaceable

Pocket Pet remains

immorally slain, and can

the Dead transcend the Extinct?

It seems impossible.

But Mice have Electric Tales, now,

and Russians scavenge deeper with ice picks

—so prehistoric order could set in.
