Chapter 10

The snake stopped
‘Where my heart lies
In ground, I know not
Some walk circles forever
Ignorant of the ceaseless doughnut

Wonda spun the pessimism
And replied;
‘Your faith must be strong
As the current of the sea
‘Your heart must be found
In one of the three’

A big black bear
Ran red with rage
So redeeming a feeling
As though it burst from a cage
Feelings unimposed
Laid siege Lucy’s mind
Tampered his head
He poised up her behind
Wonda petted her back
Scurried hands through her head
Picking grapes from the floor
Put the beast to its bed
