The banshee howled in to the abyss
As the wolf meandered through the wood
And a squirrel went scuttling by
Z ask the willow why…
And just beyond…
down by the pond
geese were gagling
& the baby ducks gawked
In sheer dismay…
At all that they had heard that day.
& not so very far away…
A fat cat sat watching…
a little mouse in it’s little house
Counting the cheesy bricks.
