Leaping Lizards!

We now reflect upon the lizard, who did not sin, unlike the serpent.

Lizards, Lizards

Lizards are fine upstanding creatures,
and they have legs to stand upon, too!
They stand up for the finest of features,
and stand down when it's time for toodle-loo.

They thus stand as the serpent's reminder
that on no leg stands the snake in his sin.
He long ago lost that transport kinder
and slithers through the dust he lives within.

He also eats that dust, which I think is not meant literally, for of what nutritional value is dust?

Don't chickens eat grit?

And doesn't the term "eat my dust" express a significant moral meaning in hotrod culture?

But while cats may cough up a fur ball, I've never heard of a snake coughing up a dust ball, but you never know.
