Three Legged Beast

I stumbled into being, a three legged beast
My hands outstretched like tentacles to
Comfort, correct, caress
I fell with a reverberating thump into the dust
Ringing through by ribs 
Small men with ropes greatening my burden
Holding me down
Until I stumbled
A three legged beast 

All alone

In the dust

Reverberating

Through my vast ribs
