Bad Birds (Bird Is Not The Real Word)


It’s Getting Close - Any Time Now
By The Way
Don’t Ask Me How
Sometimes Moving Your Shadow
Let Us Soon Forget
On How We Met
Once In A Million? – No Better Yet

Where Did You Go?
What Did I Do?
Didn’t I Tell You The Truth?
Who’s To Know – The Better Clue?
You?

What The Hell Happened
In The End, I Broke That Spell
It Lasted – Long
Long Is The Word, It Was A Bad Bird
Yes, Just Ask That Colorful Humming Bird
Cause' This Bird Knows That
Bird Is Not The Real Word

I Should Have Killed That Bad Bird
When I Had The Chance
Yeah I Told You
I Broke Its Spell
Why Am I In The Wrong? – Because
I’ve Spoken The Wrong Words?
Cause I Spent Some Shells?

I'm Ok Now - Always Clear
Near Here - Or Far
Even At My Favorite Local Bar

I Still Should Have Killed That Bad Bird
Instead I Clipped Its Wings
Dropping To The Ground
Into His Own Shit - But Just Gave Him A Sting


Yeah I
Should I Kill That Blackbird?
Will I Somehow Regret?
Maybe He Now
Wants Some More
Trying To Settle His Dark Score?

He’s Really Close Now
But I Aint Moving
Anywhere, Anymore
Neither Is My Shadow
Where Did He Go – To Hell And Back?
Who Really Knows
I Just Don’t Care If He Hangs Still
Even With The Good Crows

Well Now I’ve Killed That Bad Bird
It Was A Good Hit
Dropped To The Ground
This Time Not Missing
His Bottomless Misery Pit.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
