Fight or Flight

How does a hummingbird handle the rain?

and what about bumblebees…

are there ‘brellies

and wellies

to help out these fellies

or without do these pilots complain?

How do pond dwellers deal with a drought?

the tadpoles, the fish, and the skitters…

is there office

to process

the loss of the faucet

and if not what goes on with these critters?


How does a wolf pack recover from fire?

a bear, or a deer, or a moose…

are there builders

with guilders

to refill

the wilderness

replenishing pine tree & spruce?

However it is, these beasties then live,

I’ll wager that this much holds true…

they don’t blame

the rain

or the flame

for their pain

they change tack, since reaction was due.
