Dairy darkness

A staggering involvement

unprepared for where I was

the slaughterhouse of horrors

really just because

thoroughly unanticipated

like a  thunderbolt to me

pregnant with a baby

emerging tragically


it felt  unprecedented

exhaustion to a tee

coming from the farm yard

from the dark  dairy

Caught napping stark and wondering

birth apparently

my little calf was on the floor

bleeding surprisingly


my maternal instinct to love her

right away

the noise around  us awful

like depravity

Frighteningly obvious

my calf unexpectedly

not moving eyes wide open

seeing little seemingly


on the edge of darkness

my thought to try and see

to assist my darling calf

To appreciate and be

alive to breath and  being

loving was my aim

clearly we were in a queue

and would never feel the same


death clearly approaching

reminded of my sin

a life of utter torture

i must revive my baby

the end though near for me

a savage slash of terror

closed my eyes regretably


no real time  for anger

smouldering was I

revengeful to the obvious

i was about to die

the severity was out there

provoked into a roar

a gurgle and a tantrum

entering a war


Clearly not of my making

a darkness overcame

a bitter pill I tasted

A botheration game

a flame in me ignited

no longer could I feel

death the end of everything

a disgusting reveal.
