In the densest deep where few plants straggle,
Dark ancient wide-eyed creatures lurk in mud
With teeth (too fearsome to evolve further)
Gaping wide to gulp others, as lost and more stupid.

When net or shovel dredge them up, these brutes
Will bloat and explode; they're unable to enter
Our various environment, our human atmosphere
Where people can think, and can know they suffer.
