a fable

A Fairy Tale

This skinny lonely wolf reduced to eating worms
Expulsed from his arguing with the leader wolf how best
To catch caribous
Nose to the ground it found an open chest of fifty 
Gold ducats and since they shone so bright he ate them all
And heavy was its belly 
When other wolf saw his stomach they thought he was 
A successful hunter and he taught them how to kill 
Caribous and deer too.  
As a leader dog, he was the first to eat from a kill and
Left behind a coin or as they a ducat and a hunter stalked him 
To find in his excrete another coin
Fifty times the hunter dug into wolf shift and came up rich 
And trekked home but a blizzard came, his was ill prepared 
This heavyweight he dragged about
Put the ducats under a tree and tire he came home 
When the weather cleared, he found the tree the coins were gone
And a boney wolf was walking away it had a huge stomach.

Be happy for you have not witnessed it
The time where Haiti shook and fell
On this paper I transmit
This event worthy to tell

It started like any other day
Everything was calm and nice
Maybe it was nature’s way to repay
Us for our vice

In a split second it begun
Everything was going up and down
No matter what, you couldn’t outrun
This destructive force shaking the town

After a while it ended
The place was filled with dead silence
I was with my siblings that I defended
Saving them from this death sentence

I saw a man running with blood
All over his face, and lost his arm
The rest of his body covered with mud
With an organ sticking out of his underarm

During this catastrophe
I lost a lot of friends, and family members
I would like to destroy that part of my history
But everywhere I go that feeling ember’s

I was unlucky to see the remains
Of what was left in this desert
I had to close my eyes for it pains
Me to see my people trapped under the dirt

Just the thought of writing about it
Makes a bed of tears in my eyes
On that day I was whit
My friend as he lays and dies

For what happened to Haiti
Pray it doesn’t happen to you
This pain will cause you to worry
When they say you’re safe is it true?
