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.
