GEOCOCCYX CALIFORNIANUS

                 GEOCOCCYX CALIFORNIANUS

                ON AN ARIZONA HIGHWAY I WAS
                WHEN IN FRONT OF ME IT APPEARED
                ONE MOMENT IT WAS STANDING STILL
                THE NEXT, IT WAS RACING IN HIGH GEAR

                I KNOW I’VE SEEN ONE BEFORE
                IT WAS IN A WARNER BROTHERS CARTOON
                BEING CHASED BY A FRUSTRATED CANINE
                ODDS OF IT CATCHING IT, NOT VERY SOON

                SLENDER, BUILT FOR SPEED IT WAS
                A BROWN AND WHITE BLUR, IT STREAKED
                A TOP KNOT OF FEATHERS I BARELY SAW
                AND A LONG AND SLENDER BEAK

                THERE WAS NOTHING CHASING IT
                IT WAS OUT FOR IT’S MORNING RUN
                WHY IT RAN IN FRONT OF ME, WHO KNOWS
                MAYBE IT WAS JUST HAVING A LITTLE FUN

                NOW COULD IT BE WHAT I THINK IT IS?
                IF SO, THEN I AM TOTALLY THRILLED
                IT’S A GEOCOCCYX CALIFORNIANUS
                A ROADRUNNER RACING UP A DISTANT HILL
