Life in Verse: Peculiar Requests

<p>Graphic by Jackie Llanos</p>

Graphic by Jackie Llanos


Three dice, two mice

Two bees, three trees

A couple hats, an audience sat

What could not be was set this sort by thee

The rain pools on the ground

A shadow casts a frown

The bee does its deed

Osirus, the keeper of thee

Made known his needs

Three dice, two mice

Two bees, three trees

Would be enough to fulfill his needs

Until again, when the trees let loose their leaves

A new request will be seeked

At least the animal did not have a beak
