Asylum Entertainment

The Wild Buffalo Hullaballoo Show
 1
drove through the asylum gates
 2
while late morning tea was grimly served
 3
by a worthy woman. She cursed,
 4
wondering what the fuss was for
 5
and would the hearse that drives to heaven
 6
see her reimbursed.
 7
Early rising dressing gowns
 8
herded round windows.
 9
 
 
Its not every day you see a line of buffalo
 10
so sublime, in perfect time and unison,
 11
though some inmates, not amused,
 12
thought their facilities had been abused,
 13
and stood apart, complaining to the matron.
 14
“Why in Satan’s name are those animals allowed
 15
to occupy this ground, defacing it with their shit,
 16
muddying waters with such pissy ways?”
 17
 
 
She felt it a pity. Portrayal  
 18
of their fellow men was so poor.
 19
Could they not, on this day of all days,
 20
show some understanding?
