Banjo Bowl Moose By Mary Mikawoz

Four-legged high standing
Moose of beautiful stature
Alone and Afraid
Out of its element
In a city of non-caring citizens
Scared for their lives
And reacting with fear
Of a mild-mannered moose off-spring

Followed and harassed
Pursued and abused
By so-called public endangerment
React by shooting
Three tranquilizers
Two too many and caused a heart attack
In the Majestic Beast
Only to die on transport to a famed and promised land
