Abortion


A resigned seedling not worthy old,
Sired by worthy old
Indigenous; respected of locals,
That heart of medicine men,
Sought to confront
Shrieking
That old worthy mammoth:
‘Why trample on me? ’
Its inner self could question,
Since it had no catchments
To source its laments.
But her comforter blew
Without a definite direction,
and home to pause and talk.
it caused him to hiss and sway,
but the old worthy mammoth
still trampled.
Quit he kept,
That time ill come
That he grow, and be strong;
And the elephant that tramples
Teach him a lesson
And give no food
Then would sway and asked:
‘You elephant that tramples,
If I am no more,
If big I grow not
Tall and strong,
Who ill shelter you
from the trembles of the heavens? ’

That little seed unseen yet there ask:
‘You human-elephant, that tramples,
If you bring down before my day
Who ill lift you up when, old,
you ill grow,
Do you know am father tomorrow?

Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
