  • From one moment to the next
    and suddenly
    the cow

    She finds herself
    in gorgeous greenery
    and absolutely extraordinary

    And - plop -
    she has to stop;
    she cannot eat, she cannot drink,
    because she has to THINK:

    Why did God drop me in this beautiful place?

    When I die - will I leave a trace?

    She comes to no conclusión
    and gets into some confusión...

    She has to quit asking WHY,
    because if she does not keep munching grass,
    she will die!

    And a dead cow
    cannot anymore
    think "WOW!"
