TARSIER


sounds so french 

it’s really from asia

it jumps from tree to tree

it eats the meat of insects

can you imagine being an insect,

playing cards or something,


and suddenly there is this tarsier right there?

the tarsier eye is as large as its brain

it likes to go out at night
and is oh so furry 

they are a number of things that make this tiny primate 
interesting but just when you start to think like a scientist 
you see his cute little pink nose

you don’t hear his scream as he jumps towards you

but make no mistake: 
it jumps towards you
if you are made of meat

try to make a tarsier apologize 
it's impossible

just plain impossible

but that's not the point of tarsiers
