The beast of burden
And the donkey said to itself, a man came to the fence today gave
me a slice of bread looked me in the eye as to see if I had an inner life
What did he expect to find a scientist? For heaven`s sake
I`m a donkey who has been conditioned to love humanity, and for
a slice of bread, I kiss his face with my smacking lips.
This makes this lonely man so happy that he scratches my ear
where I can never reach.
There is a small farm nearby the farmer has two donkeys and
a small blue tractor, sometimes he uses one of the beasts to
plough a few furrows he says it is because it saves on diesel,
I think he is a sentimental old fool.
