Janus Hiking


            Janus the crafty

            Looked backward watching the lion

            As I hiked too bored to do it

            On my own humming softly

            As we hiked as one these

            Moments undoing years

            Of having but one mind.

            The lion behind

            Settled down to watch

            But one of us was aware

            And smiling.

            He squatted low with ears back

            As we chuckled softly

            Fingering our Becker BK7.

            A roll of thunder

            Might have covered the thought

            Of his charge but our piercing

            Eyes both fore and aft

            Transfixed him in the rain

            Which rolled off our hat

            In rivulets.
