Surrealism VI


A gray serpent hit
The isolated farm
In an isolated land
The night shaded the land
It ate only one cow,
The youngest
The fattest
One chicken,
The youngest
The fattest.
And left the lambs.
The gray serpent comes back
Every night
The farmers gathered
At the last victim house
Nice touch down big town boy?
Laugh the crowd.
My companion Eileen crossed my hear
Tenderly
And said
Do you like this TV commercial?
It is about the last football game
An advertisement for Miller Light
Wake up!
Sober man.
