Poem a Day 22

Today’s prompt: star stuff.xxstar

Star Chamber

The reptile’s three-
Chambered heart excludes
That secret mammal room, exempts
It from the arbitrary judgments there.

(Except for you,
You crocodilians, with
Your tears and simulated tears
And simulated smile. You know the score.)

The kangaroo-
(The primitivest of
The acloacal mammals) -court
Decides, on misread, foolish, and obscure

Precedents, and I’m condemned. The worse
Than warm blood is, is love, the mammals’ curse.
