If you leave  out the base on which she stands
The Statue Of Liberty is a few feet shorter
Than Godzilla (the original – not the new one
Who is taller and bulked up on steroids).
In high school they hung out together
And have kept in touch since then
Mostly through email. Occasionally,
Godzilla stands in New York Harbor with a torch
So Liberty can travel incognito. He keeps trying
To persuade her to visit him in Japan
“You’ll like Mothra!” he says, “And then
We can trample downtown Tokyo together.”
