The Flock

I’m feeling blue
Jay-walking is a sin
A cardinal affair
So so naughty

Distracted just a bit
Turn on the radio
Humming a song
As well as whistling

Duck! There’s an incoming kite
Out by the barn
Swallow my gum
Look at the Big Dipper
It’s like Orion’s been robbin’
The spare row of stars in the north

I’m left huffin and puffin
Why all the mocking?
Oh royal scorn, shades of red
Knots form in my stomach
Wolves ‘owl at the moon

I have to pay a fee
Be at the dock at sundown
I skip a swift skimmer of a rock
Waiting for you
To arrive
Waiting for you
To arrive

    This is so creative! I love it. I guess I’m a nerd at heart too!

    And slowly doth the time go by, until, at last, my love I spy.
