Soon the Goose Must Fly Again
He feels no fear, knows what to expect.
He will crap on people in the park.
And just miss Justin in his limo.
The errands are forever urgent.
No more wasting time with the Flying Nuns.
He knows his flights have been slightly
off course lately. The winds have become
unpredictable. He’s still proud of his plumage.
Just a bit more grey around the beak now.
Bhat should soon be looking for a gosling.
So he can fly off to an elegant golf course,
near an ocean somewhere. Start writing
about his life on canvas.
