The New Evolutionary Wars
by Thomas B. White
All pedestrians are lizards
disguised in trousers and skirts;
they get into glittering cars
and roam the land like dwarfish dinosaurs.
Mammalian friends and colleagues are unknown.
Our parties feature polished adversaries
in shiny blue-green armor
who stab canapes off silver trays
at 15 feet with sticky pink tongues.
These are creatures even subhumans shun.
The new evolutionary wars have just begun.
