scouting freedom

 

.

to kill
the mocking
(bird)
in your head,
you’ve got to
first stone
her song, that
strange un
-quiet longing
for redundant
dread.

{careful, she’ll
try to hide in tree,
on rooftop}

and if she comes
back to clack
and c(l)aw
…………at you
again,

just look that
sucker right in
the eye and say
…………boo.

    Earworms with prejudice are double trouble brewing. Nicely written in a fun read for a serious problem.
