Sometimes people just annoy me. Been on one of those kicks lately, and I much prefer the company of the owls and other birds and critters in my pasture. Good thing I’m starting on summer break. My pondering of human nature in 55 words for G-Man.
Athena’s owl sitting high
in the willow bough
watches over the world
as wisdom wanes beneath.
The feeding frenzy of fear,
all consuming and self-renewing,
plaguing the human race
until intelligence survives no more.
He wings slowly back across the land
to his wise goddess of justice,
tears falling as he flies past
I have twenty goats to kid in the next three weeks, so I might not be around much.
