poetry by j matthew waters

uninhibited & unafraid

there was one distraction after the next
but somehow progress was being made
custodians sweeping up a huge mess
left behind by the reluctant loser

one by one the followers dropped off
by way of a single lane bridge
herded away like cattle or sheep
counting their blessings along the way

having discovered another side exists
more & more city folk pack their bags
looking to join the blossoming pilgrimage
back to the land of grass-fed cows

december two thousand twenty
