National Poetry Day Message Poem by Will May, Ardingly College Prep.
Apology to a Greyhound
Why do we make you run so fast?
Released from the traps so we can tempt you with the hare as bait,
Think you can turn the sand to glass,
But all that happens is that you wait
And when you reach your last,
So then to you we sate,
When you can no longer turn the sand to glass
And no longer be released from the traps to be tempted with the hare as bait,
You are past.
Gone to the next life to end your tormented wait.
