Too Much for the Donkey


Too Much for the Donkey
Beast of burden, yes the donkey
Beast is beast but gentle ones too
Harmless, docile, also ‘yes man’ too
When the load lifts the beast
That’s for sure a messed up feast
It can’t tell the pressure
It can’t prove the measure
When the load lifts the beast
The whole world can see it
A little love, a little relief
The donkey will relish
But here is it like hellish
When your load lifts the donkey
The donkey wonders why
A very sure messed up feast!
When the load lifts the beast!

Poem written to discourage animal maltreatment.
