The llamas reflect

    The llamas reflect

(In the style of a slow waltz, each line spoken by a different member of the herd)

We muse–
We chew–
Not much
else
to do
With a farmer
Who is fearful,
And a herd
Misunderstood.

It is not
That we are cruel
We are just
Underenthused
With a farmer
Who is fearful
And a herd
Misunderstood.

We are not
As bright as humans
But we’re not
A stupid race
And we’d like
To have a challenge
Or at least
A game to play.

In the absence
Of a challenge
We do not feel
That you should blame
A herd who chases
Feeble farmers
Who have failed
To entertain.

If you’re passing
By our pastures
Do feel free
To come on by;
Some intellectual
Stimulation
Would make
Our long days fly.

So we offer
You this poem
To request
A little good
For a farmer
Who is fearful
And a herd
Misunderstood.
