Food for Thought-Text Messaging the Gold Calf

I’m in this thing somewhere,
That’s me,
Right there,
Beside that golden cow,
Looking at the reflection,
Holding up my index finger,
As if I’m trying to write my name,
Or send a message,
To this bovine God,
Or an unseen friend,
While I wait,
For this “Moses”
Who will never return,
From his powwow with God,
What do I say,
What shall I write,
In this text,
OMG,
DO I REALLY EXPECT
A COW TO DO SOMETHING
GOOD FOR ME?
