Wordle #112 “June 6th, 2016” Saurian


This week’s words: Saurian (belonging or pertaining to the Sauria, a group of reptiles originally including the lizards, crocodiles, and several extinct forms but now technically restricted to the lizards. Resembling a lizard.) Fuel Leak Head Psychosis Elevate Offline Similar Jerk Legible Massive Entelechy (a realization or actuality as opposed to a potentiality. In vitalist philosophy a vital agent or force directing growth and life.)

The saurian stepped its way through the landscape assured of his majesty and power. It was suddenly aware of a new predator. The jerk of its head was enough to suggest its puzzlement.

Its massive head turned in the direction of the sound.

It was at this second it experienced a entelechic moment. Where it had previously ruled the world without fear now there was a potential foe to deal with as well as eat.

The potential enemy was a similar two-legged beast. Much smaller but fuelled by a desire to eat. This beast was competition.

Now Saurians are not known as the most complete of animals, their small brain fuelled the desire to eat the two-legged creature, in one bite if possible, but in modern terms it possessed a psychotic response to most situations.

Inside its head there leaked the words, attack, attack, attack!!

The two-legged creature in order to bring about some equity in size climbed a tree to elevate itself to a height where it might be on equal terms with the mighty saurian. In its hand it carried a small stick, well small if you are a giant lizard. The whole scenario was legible in a prehistoric sort of way. Well to the saurian it was quite clear. Charge; put the creature offline quicker than it could get online. Dinner done and dusted for another day, though the creature didn’t look much more than an appetiser.

In the ensuing minutes the saurian encountered the sheer destructive cunning of the two legs whose stick contained a poison that sent the lizard to a sudden death.

The age of the two legs had begun; the age of the saurian had begun to decline.

    Yay for the two legs (even the ones whose two legs don’t work too well) 🙂
    Another great Wordle, Michael. For a moment, I thought I was reading a Tolkien novel.

        Goodness really…I have to confess I never really enjoyed his books…..when I was at uni, a hundred years ago, we had a lecturer who made a point of being at uni with Tolkien. That was enough to put me off.

    Some how, I sympathise with both participants in the life circle you described. Your story reminded me a lot of movies!
