Poem of the Day: Clear the Field



Clear the field
Run away!
The farmer’s bull escaped today.

Swim the creek,
He’s mad, I see.
With those big horns, we’d better flee!

Jump the ditch,
Scale the rocks.
Don’t follow me in those red socks.

Take them off!
Shut the gate.
Don’t look back, the bull’s irate.

Home at last.
Slam the door.
We’re not snooping anymore!
