Shimmer, Exister

Entitled to eponymia
That's a new way of saying it
Merriam won't web that 
And certainly can't stir
A drink over-shaken
Bubbling at odds
Evenly staring
Wishing to gods
That's the name of fame
It's to become a child of Zeus
Carrying Zarathustra's burden
Zithering, zoos
Store your animals 
In cages, well-fed
They're endangered
As of course the wild humans
Will take what they will
For reasons that don't have seasons
They merely fulfill the void
That exists in every so-called soul
Driving cars full of guns
To the edge of their pride
And taking a lion and an elephant
For good obelisk measure
