They’ve taken Saturday’s rain away

with future promises

like plastic magic debt

no one intends to pay.


We’ve been here before,

crooning to godesses

not to forget us

like the hopeless homeless.


We are this ground

rooted into the future

like the plodding lives of cattle,

trusting, trusting, trusting….

  1. Bad enough we can only pray for moisture to nourish us, but how do we trust the 4 processers that import beef, raise the retail prices, but only pay a rancher only the price of feed (if lucky), and the laborer even less. They have put so many ranchers out of business. Yet they get away with price gouging and price fixing agreements with themselves.
