The Goat

© 2013 C./R. Rothschild

The goat came from a mound in the earth,

and everything rumbled and everything shook,

all the children ran in fear.

And as it rose into the sky, a velvet crimson lullaby

was heard by all both far and near.

There are those who say the simple days have come and gone,

but I believe the goat is here to stay.

 

Close the doors and windows for the night is here,

and who knows what is breathing in the cold night air.

Light the candles and the fire and dream of day and all the things

you do when it’s day out there.

There are those who say the simple days have come and gone,

but I believe the goat is here to stay.
