Coyotes

I’ll be returning
to the pre-dawn woods
to chase some Coyotes,
I’ve had way too many calls
on them gettin’ close to livestock;
when Coyotes start gettin’ to be a
problem killing livestock and even pets,
a choice has to be made
a balance has to be struck;
Back in the 70’s
my parents used to get
$2 an ear for Coyotes;
they’d 3 calves that got killed
and in one night my Dad got
enough to buy 3 replacement calves;
Same choice I’ve got to make today,
same balance I need to strike,
I’ve had way too many calls,
I’ll be returning to
the pre-dawn woods
to chase some Coyotes.

This is a “found” poem. Any everyday,overhead speech or conversation or even a newspaper item can be utilised and fashioned into poetry.I got the bulk of this from a couple of facebook postings involving a country park ranger out West.
