Drought is a slow death
grass waiting for a shower that never comes
and so the cows must go, strange fact
the less grass for the cows the more quarter pounders
(just hold the cheese) as they pass through golden arches.
Did you know cows have names?
Bessie for sure in every herd.
And not unlike a teacher with freshmen,
sometimes confused with an older sister,
as names are learned with start of classes.
Dairyman and teacher tasked.
So it is hard when they go
some more than others
more than a name.
