Happy Animals

the happy animals are happy
others are prone to anxieties

the chickens are happy peck
roost lay eggs come to meet

Tom is happy rubbing legs
calling to us haunting doors

bright Phebe fears me jumps
Carol's back in the garden

paranoid Ginger slinks off
submits to forced petting

horses have complex minds
moods stubborn ailments

jumpy Guinever worries
where is everyone what now

Annie gladly does her thing
expects to be treated right

Chinita lame doesn't know
she's scheduled to be bred

the steer in the far pasture
just happy not to be inside
