On the Ramp

Two Devon Reds

Hesitate at the trailer ramp

Roughly littered with straw.

They walked together from the field

Steaming backs

Exhaling clouds to the chilly dawn

After the heavy rain of night.

Have they realised

The pasture is behind them

A vet is waiting

The abattoir is open for business?
