Poem: "To Call a Halt"

This poem came out of the January 7, 2020 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] redsixwing. It has been sponsored by [personal profile] bairnsidhe.

"To Call a Halt"
-- a bredlik

My name is Cow.
I wan to liv.
These nu fake meets --
Such hope they giv!
For now, the way
To call a halt
Is taste no gud:

I lik the salt.

The bredlik is a quirky poetic form with 8 lines, typically with 4 syllables each, rhyming abcbdefe.
