Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

bb-un1Wild Conspiracies (a re-post)

I ask scribbly gum moths:
Why this graffiti on trees?
“Mind your own business,
they’re just doodles, if you please”

I ask a plodding snail:
Why the squiggles on the path?
“There ain’t nothing in it –
I just do it for a laugh”

I ask the sly hyena:
Why the tunnels ‘neath the trail?
“Well! Installation art’s
not only for the snail!”

I ask the bower bird:
Why that hoard of shining bling?
“Oh, poppet, it’s no mystery
objets d’art are my thing”

I ask the primping zebra:
What’s with the barcode?
“Poor darling, don’t you know?
Stripes are back in vogue”

But, you know, I don’t believe them –
It’s a vast conspiracy
It’s clear that they are sending
secret messages to me…

  1. Snails ARE good, and this must be one of the best in the Unexpected series.Has that one finished? – if it has, you shoulda won! Remind me: where is this mall? I believe I see it quite often on nightly news …

  2. SHIT! – really? Senility must have overtaken me. It doesn’t LOOK like Pitt St Mall. 😦
    I guess this must be because I’m never there at night … But I still feel like a total dickhead. Sighh …
