Flight mode activated

Eve of Ramadan
Grandmothers, children and half a village
Pursue a sheep in flight
Lucky runners winning blisters from hot collisions along the way
“Catch me if you can!”
The sheep seems to bleat in mockery
As it narrowly misses sticks and insults
Hurled at it
The villagers pursue harder
Mumbling prayers
Mumbling strength
From Allah the Most Merciful
