BRAI’S COWNTRY MEMOS [A POEM]

The vagrant indigent legion
From nether far-flung region
Pulled from poverty’s slough
By Brai’s benevolent claw

Adapt to cow
Take a bow

Patrons of stolen ease
Hiding in the sea of sleaze
Your liberty is sealed and sure
It’s time to come ashore

Adapt to cow
Take a bow

You faced jeers and taunts
The spectre of rejection still haunts
Rejoice sing and be mighty glad
Your prayer of retribution is heard

Adapt to cow
Take a bow

Those skulking in the shadows
Denied to lounge in the meadows
This is your day to rise and shine
To frolic to wine and to dine

Adapt to cow
Take a bow

The wicked yoke of knowledge
Kept you on the famished edge
But now’s your time: the acceptable hour
To gawk at wisdom, buoyed by power

Adapt to cow
Take a bow

From his parchments make a bonfire
The revered scribe calls me a liar
Hurt his pride, draw his ire
That crusading sage is sure to tire

Adapt to cow
Take a bow

Bring all your ant-infested parchments
Add your dubious, doctored documents
If you pledge to thrust and obey
I’ll keep your adversaries at bay

Adapt to cow
Take a bow
