Jasper gripped a crooked stick

Split at both ends

For hands to hold

Laughter followed him

All the day long

As he searched

For a watering hole


Adults and children alike

How they’d giggle

Watching this old man

And his limb

Tossing out quips

Of indignation

But Jasper ignored all of them


Everyone left the dessert one day

Except one young, little lad

For he had no one

Yes, he had lost all

Since the death of his mom and dad


Jasper had heart

And took the boy in

Telling him he would not thirst

With a limb of his own

The boy would divine

To find water

And in it – rebirth
