The Herd by Margaret Simpson

moves across the land

heads lowered

mandibles working

so much grass    so much stomach

to fill     empty     fill

believing

the grass is sweet

not knowing the taste

of a blade

Brilliant, Margaret. Says a lot in a few words. I think I'm one of the herd!

The last line says so much. The taste of a blade.? Grass or knife.
