Ode To A Camel

The Ragtag Daily Prompt this morning was SAND.

Well, Bobby Burns once wrote an ode to a Mouse, to a Louse, and even an Address to a Haggis. So why not to a Camel?

Fellow Traveller

the miles you must go
the grit in your teeth
the sand always pulling
at weary splayed feet

what you’d give for a drink
an oasis of calm
in this bleak weary land
for your spirit a balm

a place to unload
those burdens that press
and sit yourself down
for refreshing and rest

like you, poor old camel
I constantly weave
toward the night coming
the promised reprieve
