A Dexter Bull -- poem

A Dexter Bull

is a true miniature of size
bellowing as regular
males often
do, masculine grunts
beginning with conversation
across the fence

then a dialogue of disagreement
since territorial interests
are involved--
two bulls on their private space
prancing in the pasture
soon leads to several rounds
of head-butting.

On opposite sides of wired
fence, anxious eyes are watching
harems proud of their men
the same attention
human species receive
when they too think
they are King of the hills
they roam.

Richard L. Provencher
