The car ate gallons of golden gasoline spray,
the pen survived on compressed mass of carbon ink.

the lizard devoured species of small insects,
the light bulb shone to swift currents of white electricity.

the birds lived on suspended wind in atmosphere,
the rock crevices hungrily gulped salty sea waves.

the tree sucked moisture from interior core of soil,
triangular ice cubes fed on incessant supply of frozen air.

the pigments of green derived fodder through bright Sunshine,
red crested parrot nibbled spicy chunks of homemade pickle.

the cigarette sticks relied solely on milligrams of lethal tobacco,
thick skinned elephant swallowed a truck load of healthy leaves.

the placid night was cooled by strong beams of the tranquil moon,
the marine octopus relished a meal of long fish and crab.

the wall clock functioned due to meticulous unwinding of chains,
the bumble bee rested in jars of natural honey.

the computer processed data from a configuration of microchips,
exhaustion was accentuated further by infinite beads of sweat dripping down.

the humans existing lived on a cascade of currency,
whilst I occupied the soil, entirely listening to tunes of my heart.
