100 Word Wednesday: Week 12 – What price freedom?

Image Credit: Samantha Scholl

Woe is us for working too hard

Wandering like hapless harlots

Let’s cry away from the barnyard

People hear our grief as we strut

Curse our weakness for blood and tears

The chimney was thrown by the blast

We’re working like slaves all these years

We deserve freedom at long last

The sky is blue, such a great day

Wind blows from the East as we run

And in unison we all neigh

Sun is behind us and we’ve won

What price freedom, we’re all asking

Free to groom each other and play

Free to nap and spend time haying
