The Ravaged Valley Presents, The Stew, A Poem By Dominique Hodnett

The Stew
A Poem

The sheep went to the field to find a meal
The Farmer left to check upon the sheep
His wife would wake to find him gone from home
The boys awoke without the smell of food
The girls woke up to sounds of brothers' groans
They all were sick of whining and complaints
So they went to the kitchen for a change
The girls did what they saw their mother do
Potatoes in the pot to make the stew
The boys sat at the table spoons in hand
Drool dropped down from their mouths onto their pants
The girls were fed up with all the chanting
They cooled down the stove and started ranting
They all started fighting as siblings do
The children forgot all about the stew
The oldest boy said "take it outside home"
They all did just that and resumed fighting
Looked at their home and were shocked like lightning
Mother was dragging father ear in hand
Father carried sheep bundled in his chest
The children saw their parents from afar
They wondered where they wanted to place blame  
For the fight and their home that was aflame
