Equines Unite #Poetry

Below is my submission to Stevie Turner’s Short Story/Poetry Competition for June 2019. If you’d like, you can enter too. Create something new and original or find something you’ve written but never shared before. Give it a try and enter here.

This poem is based on a recent experience but told from the alternative point of view. Please let me know what you think.

Equines Unite 

Brown, Gray, White

Mule, Donkey, Horse

We all share the same plight

We are stuck within this fence

All day and all night

When we opened the gate

We ate all the grass in sight

Bashed and thrashed around the yard

Those humans looked affright

As they rounded us up

And closed us in tight

We need another decoy

And together we’ll unite

Outside those paltry boundaries

We’ll once again take flight
