Crazy Horse

They said I was a dog in a manger

stealing what was meant for others

more needy than I was.

I never understood.


I always thought I was a horse.


I was surviving by eating

whenever I could.

Surely that was right,

what was expected

in this world

of dog eat dog

and winner takes all.


they said

I was mad,

off my head

I should know my place

which was at the end of the line,

should wait my turn,

and be grateful for any crumbs

left in the manger.

That was when I lost it,

really lost my head.
