plight of the demented rook

weary eyed
and full of disbelief,
i marveled
at the witty prattle
thrown back and forth
between man and fowl.
glittering generalities
that intrigued my curiosity
enough to provoke wonder...
was i napping or awkwardly aware?
yet was this enough to cause a stare?
so i stood
and digested this scene.
one so bizarre as i'd never seen.
...was it drawn near by a fist full
of jelly beans?
alas,a tear has formed on beak of bird~
trailed by a sorrowful cry of pain unheard.
"tis this not the bust of Pallus?"
faint laughter of pristine amusement,
as weathered stone replies,
nevermore.
a parting gift,
spinach and mayonnaise.
deposited on shoulders
of statuesque malaise.

  1. Yes! Great work, wurdz. Excellent allusions, puns, flow... and really good infusion of imagery in the second half beginning with "a fist full
    of jelly beans?" Eloquent ending too.
