Cow Barn of Manure

by Kevin Rottweiler

the cows were milking today

manure was everywhere

this is farm life

like a Robert Frost day

Norman Rockwell

paintings of hay

an old white church

Lutheran, with stained

glass windows

as apples fall to the ground

bees making a buzzing sound

the smell of manure

is not welcome by man

but God does not mind

it permeates the air

to show people

cows are alive

and attracts

money, veterinarians and workers

someone has to clean up the mess
