Because of the Rooster

Because of the rooster,
the insisting, demeaning, and demanding.
The lonely loud cock
stained with the fortune
of freezing time.

Because of this rooster,
stuck in a cycle of violence,
stuck between day and night.

Because of this damn rooster,
the mornings come
before the light.
