Title: My Bony Ol' Cow

O my cow
my gentle companion
runned away from me;
sweet hay in your nostrils
O runned away from me.
Liquid deep compassion
your dark glowing eye
looked away from me;
when my mood turned vile.

O your gurgling belly
and caked cloven hoof
green gold from your nethers
under my crazy tiled roof.

O your poor stillborn
you stood still and sighed
too low even for lowing
you bare ribbed plight.

Your muddy bucket I kick
too dark to scour your stall
flies buzz a frenzy
dank looms the wall;
O you bony existence
fattened as dry grass
O the wet cold night
I lean into your mass..

O my mute entreaty
you runned away from me;
O cow, gentle companion
runned away from me.
