To the North of Sunday with you

Mud stone tracks,
a lamb rots with bones scattered,
crows squat on lichen stained trees,
heel skin shrivels,
with blood ousy itch,
from wool steel stabs and scrapes,
as squelchy leather boots pull Earth along.
And the rain, grey. And the rain, wet. And the rain, rain.
