Fields Of Dreams.

 

Fields Of Dreams.

 

The lone crow harrasses

 

acres yet harvested,

 

while  stick figured tatics

 

can't hope to discourage

 

the sharp bluish green eyes

 

that cackle with glee

 

plus a  beak

 

so much sharper

 

that renders to fodder



the plump ears of corn,

succulent gold jewels

each plucked free

 

from their cradled

silky lined green enclosures.



10,000  more scarecrows

 

would never deter,

such a scavenger scrabbling

 

scarred by shotgun's hard pellets

 

yet each day he returns

 

delighting in feasting

 

on old farmer Amos's

All you can eat

 

tasty vegatable buffet.
