    The Stampede

    Tamed, they stand in isolation,
    Pensive, despondent, and mute.
    An occasional neigh, a snort,
    The sound of a questioning hoof,
    "What now?", one stomps once, then stops.

    They stand noble, inert, complete,
    Like helium, like xenon, like fear,
    Consumable, chemical packages,
    Like a scream at the top of your throat,
    Like a tear full of passion, ready to fall.

    And then and there comes the storm:
    A lightening bolt, a thundering whip across the sky,
    A neigh, a teardrop, a squeal, a scream,
    The deafening sound of stomping hooves.
