June 15th…“WHEN YOU WERE A LITTLE BOY ON THE FARM, DID YOU EVER DO SOMETHING THAT MADE SENSE TO YOU, BUT NOT TO YOUR PARENTS?”
POEM – “Just Like A Cow” by N. Elliott Noorlun
As a farmer boy, I’d oft say “WOW!!!”,
At the how and now, Of a black n white cow.
Especially when, It was time to eat,
Cause they’d use their lips, And not their feet.
Unlike us humans, Who used a hand,
To guide a fork, To make food land,
Inside our mouth, Where it should be,
But just like a cow, I wanna be.
So at the table, One fine night,
With family around, And in plain sight.
I lowered face, Into my plate,
To eat with lips, Like those bovine great.
Well, Mom was sitting, Next to my place,
And saw that food, All o’er my face.
She gave my collar, An upward yank,
And scolded me, With threat to spank.
“But Mom, I wanna be, Just like cow!”
“Well, you’re a little boy, So behave, and NOW!!!” 😉
