Cattle


It's all in the name,
So I added an extra letter
Just like the savant said
Straightaway inspired awe

So that the ears just heard
Without letting slip a word
The heads just nodded
Just like the herd
With feet that just followed
The heads dared not raise
Fearful of meeting eyes
Fearful of seeing lies
