Are you laughing

Excessive with assumptions; 
They quibble all amongst them.
And the cox’s have all but crowed for day; 
But their hoping they may play.
    And the chickens with their golden straws; 
    They’re digging with their claws
    Scratching signs of peace on earth; 
    As they hide their shadows girth.
And the slingers learned to draw their guns; 
But they’re often on the run;
But the seekers love to stay intense; 
While hanging from the fence.
    And I am but a ricochet;
    Bouncing off the sounds;
    Because of all the things I’ve ever heard;
    They can sometimes be absurd;

    Great imagery, Leonard! One can feel them bouncing off the walls. Lots happening here. A wild enough subject to tackle with this tamed and colourful approach. Love "chickens with their golden straws....":) Amazingly well concieved write, Lenny!! Best wishes, Mikki
