What the hell

What the hell

Biting on a greasy chicken leg
Stomach roars, needs to vomit
Traveling deep into past times
I am the bison in prairie, lame
Among the herds, hear blames
Unlike relatives there I remain
Disoriented, so I feel ashamed
Confessing: "I am a carnivore"

What the hell

Deep into the coyotes' eyes
I look to see the prairie dog
Read their minds; in a fight
Some licking my blood fresh
Some fighting, over my flesh

I have betrayed my kind

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
