Splitting a Log.

When splitting a log
Its easier if
you’re focused,
execute a smooth
practiced stroke,
measure your strike,
marked well
the point of contact.
You can use
a light practice swing,
a practiced eye,
a neck,
or an entire head,
the edge of a shrill voice,
will scratch a suitable mark
on the flesh or bark
Or use instead
the roaring of an ass
or the squealling of a hog.
One is as good
as the other.
When undertaking,
the satisfying work
of splitting a log.
