Cock-A-Doodle-Do

You have to wonder

do they really understand?

Do they see that disdain grows

disenchanted taking hold

smiles to sneers

or no?

Are their egos so large?

Is vanity thy name?

When all give reign

to the cawing rooster

bowing in servitude

there is not a wonder

that all you find

is dust

grey and gritty

filling obtuse heads.
