Wait

~

I see.                        I saw.

What it is               I don’t know.

 

I’m five years old         watching.

 

A chicken                 all white.

    It’s head is cut off.

 

But no!        It’s not.             It’s hanging.

 

Around and around

          the bird runs around.

 

It runs in greater wide circles.

 

It stumbles.           It falls.       It Gets up    and runs.

 

       Where is it going   to go?

 

 

Doomed!            It’s Doomed.

       And I feel Doomed too.

 

And the people

     just stand around watching.

 

There’s nothing now…..

what can anyone do?

 

but wait.

 

What it is              now,   I know.
