To An Ostrich Seen From Above After Frances Cornford To A Fat Woman Seen From A Train - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Why do you bury your head underground,
risking so much and so much?
O black and white ostrich with feathers all found,
why do you bury your head in the ground
while the grass is so soft and the hunter’s around
and the trigger is light on the touch?
O why do you bury your head underground,
risking so much and so much?
