Buckaroo!

You are a mule,
a quiet creature,
an honest, hard worker,
a soft touch.
People gather around you,
it’s all fun and games at first,
the anticipation.
Slowly one by one
they start hanging their junk on you,
piling it up on your back
and hanging around your neck.
You buckle slightly,
you stay strong,
they proceed cautiously.
Whether it’s an accidental knock
or simply not being able to cope any more,
you violently throw your limbs in the air,
trying to throw all the pressure off you.
It’s a sudden gesture
that takes them by surprise
and it doesn’t really looking like anything
other than crazy.
