Issue 164, Winter 2002-2003
When Mutual of Omaha supported
nature shows, it spared us sex and gore.
We stared as peacocks preened and rhinos courted,
then later saw the litters—nothing more.

(just as insurance agents do for you)
and Marlon would relax while Jim's life hung
in balance, for his dart gun's aim was true.
