common vole

beneath the green
of golfer’s courses
where moles and voles
dwell happily
a creature yet
might have a headache
from all the ruckus
up above

what’s left to do
for the poor critter
is to wage a little war
on the golfers
and their caddies
from the molehill’s
fortress floor

to get rid of
human nuisance
and relieve rodents
from their woes
digging potholes,
traps, and trenches
seems to be
par for the course
