Aunts and Moms and Cats and more….

Aunts and Moms and Cats and more.... short poem

Pigs that grunt
With runts who run
Horses that neigh
Eating curd and whey!

Elephants that trumpet
Gobbling croissants and crumpets
Sparrows that tweet
Offering a melodious treat!

Monkeys that chatter
With plantains on a platter
Parrots that screech
While claiming to preach!

I see them all
Sitting on a wall
With aunts and cats
And mothers and dogs
Who chat and purr
And rock and roll!

I rock and roll
And shake a mean leg
For life is a roll
And I gambol!
On the green grass
And yellow hay
Playing some Strauss
Like a whistling blue jay!

You are missed whenever rain hits my heart Does these drops take my worth to you every season I speak my stories to these silver tear drops for hours Do you get every word of mine? Or Do you breathe

I thought it belonged to only I, But you have claimed it for yourself. You say I should hurry up and die, That I’m only good for killing myself. I don’t wish to hear you, But you stole my hands.
