What Is Left?

  • by

Counting the losses
Taking stock
Basket dropped
Eggs broken

I deduct the total
Projected chickens
Take away smashed eggs
Equals us.

I eye the battery
Counting empty cages
Wondering who ordered so many
Wondering how we fullfil our orders
Wondering what we tell the customers
Wondering where we get more hens
Wondering where we get more baskets
Wondering, who really broke the eggs
Ebay beckons, for the cages.
