Colorado altitude

breathtaking view
bones of earth broken askew
heaved up and piled bounding the plain
telltale of some seismic mole
headed on a southward stroll

ascending elevations
among fantastic crenelations
craning neck to capture peaks
in home of elk and big horn sheep

given all this natural splendor
difficult not to surrender
enmity 'twixt all the tribes
in favor of global decree
to save earth for posterity

symbiosis only works when there is give and take
and magnitudes of both alike
for if the thirst of one grows great
the name that's right is parasite
to fit the one who's slaked
