Poem : The Lean Cow

Poem : The Lean Cow

The lean cow cries
Yet the grass is taken away
“It’s not green enough”, they says
Instead, they lead them astray
To the butchers and milkers

“Better feed”, they promise
But the cow knows the truth
So does the knife
And the ones holding it
Spectators clap star-struck

Such ruckus over a rope?
How ungratefully it moos!
What a lucky, lucky cow!
Lick and chew thorns awhile
Such green, green pastures in store!
