7 November – The Coventry cow

At the edge of the field,
in the corner, on its own,
stands the Coventry cow –
completely alone.
What has it done wrong
to be shunned to this degree?
Will it ever be forgiven?
Does the guilt weigh heavily?
Poor estranged cow,
left to think upon its shame,
I hope it will be welcomed back
by its herd again.
