The Outing

They pulled and strained to walk
Ahead of her.
She struggled to keep them in line.

Under a cloudless summer sky,
All she could hear was the sound of their
Wheezing and panting.

Was she being paid enough for this?

 It was hard to tell who was in control: her or them.
She was barely in charge: as long as they didn't see

the squirrel.
