Wild Goose Chase - Poem by Dr PJ Raj Kamal

Strange men
prowl under
the sprawling
trees
Like cats
stalking
the prey
Pulled out
catapults
in
hand
Aim the
frisking
squirrels
atop

Some hunt
a moor fowl
across
the mire
Shouting
Squalling
Hoping that will
fall effete
after a
good chase

Gracious
grandma
says
Kid, dear
They aren't
kidnappers
Must eat
game any
These times
of trouble
it's their
struggle
to survive
on the kill
At times still
It's all
a wild goose
chase
