Mysterious Jungle Mounds #poem #poetry #nature #science #earthworm #fact

Deep in Colombian jungles
Rise mysterious mounds,
Twice as high as humans stand,
No one knew what they’d found.

Seen from the air they’re a puzzle.
Are they what Mayans would leave?
Or built by ancient farmers?
The Spanish? or even ETs?

Reality’s better than any dream,
And crazy, I understand.
I prefer the real world.
Gee, nature is grand!

Now we’ve finally got the scoop!
It’s earthworm poop,
It’s earthworm poop.
Piles and piles of earthworm poop.

Gee, nature is grand!
