Man-Made Predator

The true behemoth of the ice

Is a beast

With large, unforgiving jaws,

And a stout, boxy shape.

His niche in the tundra

Is to shave off the rough patches

Into sleek ice.

The rest of the time, he hibernates.

His name’s a bit humorous

But in front of him don’t laugh

Because a Zamboni,

quite frankly,

Could shave you in half.
