The Tomb of the Unknown

In the world's largest
and most prestigious Pet Cemetery
on the Ile d'Asnières just outside Paris,
only Mario Vargas Llosa mentions
a Tomb of the Unknown Dog.
He probably was joking, if not sneering.

Not even on Mauritius
is there a Tomb of the Unknown Dodo.
Nor - strange to say - anywhere
is there a Tomb of the Unknown Penis,
unless you (mischievous and not god-fearing)
include minarets.

Nor will evolved simians place flowers
on a Memorial to the Terrible
Unknown Hominid.
If they do, their end will be as
bleak and ineluctable as ours.
