Legs

octopus_at_kelly_tarltons

A spider and octopus
have eight legs
horses, cows, dogs have four
birds and men have two
snails and snakes have none

Is it better to have
more or less
Is one superior or inferior
based on the number of legs we have?
IF so, we’re low on the list.

Do I like a creature
based on how many legs
it has? Should I like
those like me
and hate the rest?

What was God thinking
that he gave spiders
more legs than me!
