Ode to Donkeys

Donkeys cross the road better than us
without wandering here and there.
They are never fickle in their gait
They are just straight.

They are not smart asses
but are deeply thoughtful.
Sometimes, they drop shit oddly on the roads
we only hurl it against each other.

Lately, I see people transfixed by these donkeys
but they never take notice.
They just proceed objectively like
the heroes from great novels.
