Humaning

So many different animals have names that act as verbs,
Like “badger,” “ferret,” “dog,” and “cow.” Would this get on their nerves?
If they spoke English also, what would “human” come to mean?
To greatly change the landscape and/or dominate the scene?
To make and/or depend upon a plethora of tools?
To run upon one’s hind legs or to babble on like fools?
To hunt for sport? To go to war for very little reason?
To cover up one’s private parts? To mate in every season?
With luck, it might allude to humans’ rare consideration
In giving other animals our love and adoration.
Of course, we tend to figure they’ve at best a mixed opinion
Of humans as a species, with our overdone dominion.

This will probably be the last post I ever make on LiveJournal. I simply cannot abide by the new terms of service.

I hope that the few LJers who've been reading me recently will join me at Dreamwidth, which is almost the same thing with more freedom. With some luck, I may be able to transfer the last few years' entries there as well, but in any case, I'll keep a link to my LJ open for the time being.
