A Dilemma


To kill or not the mockingbird?
This is absurd!
Remarked the boy.

Keeps me awake,
With the noise it makes,
Crying for love.

It's not a robin red.
Her voice is dread.
It has no shame!

I try to rest
But she's a pest
Screaming so loud.

It's been so long
With her crazy song.
I can't take no more!

Hidden I have a fire gun
She'd better start to fly or run
To save her life.

To kill or not the mockingbird?
Ah, this is absurd.
Whined the boy.

And…left...

    Fine print of thoughts. A question rises whether a symbol is the mother or an offspring, for we dont want to incline to a conclusion when the poem is beautiful. Ah tis does not even matter. (Report) Reply

    'to kill a mocking bird' is a poem full of such thought-provoking symbols, , u have used every symbol for conveying the meaning in its totality, , just remembered the bestseller novel by Harper Lee, while going through this nice poem, thanx (Report) Reply
