The Capybara as a Unit of Measure

Unit of Measure

BY SANDRA BEASLEY

All can be measured by the standard of the capybara.
Everyone is lesser than or greater than the capybara.
Everything is taller or shorter than the capybara.
Everything is mistaken for a Brazilian dance craze
more or less frequently than the capybara.

That was just a teaser. To read the whole poem you need to go to  the Poetry Foundation page, it is well worth the trip.
