‘Roos

Written for:  Blogging From A to Z – “K”

A mob of red ‘roos
is an odd term
for a group
of these docile,
friendly herbivores.
A sports-minded
animal, they box,
jump, and swim. Little
Joeys in pouches peek
out.

When I was a kid,
I watched a television
show called, Captain
Kangaroo. I don’t know
if his name was acceptable
to the mob.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
