Mother Goose

Mother goose, confuses goslings
when she titivates her crown
with lemon-luscious locks.
She seeks to lure her friend -
polo-shirted, blue and kind
into trans-species love.
See the wistful longing
in her button eyes, a gaze
reserved for ganders
until now her heart's ablaze.
Her children slink away they've lost
their mother to a toupée, donned
to catch a homo sapiens. Sadly
such step-fatherhood is doomed
by lack of shared language.
Honk, honk lacks all meaning
in this man's waxy, hairy ears.
