Alas for the Chicken in the House on Fire

We weep for the chicken
and its metaphorical situation
and we hope it will find
something remembering flight
since NEVER
in the history
of chickens
has this one
been a metaphor


The Cheese Is to Blame

I blame the cheese
and metaphors

The cheese would never have attacked
if not for the metaphors

Alas for the hurting
alas for the caring

Alas for the singing
and now it is time for bed
