2020-10-18 – Family Farm

the barnyard gate’s
been left

swinging open,
clanging
iron

in wrath of a
bad breeze
again,

and i can’t find
a roaming
hen

let alone a
lone egg
intact

and mister rooster
snored through
his alarm
again,

family farm’s
become

a powder
keg,

so i ease the gate
closed and
lock it,

but sadly, won’t be
coming back
to check
on it..

no, not
again.
