Hawaiian Island Coconuts - Poem by R.Benjamin Abate

Waiting for you
To walk by
So they can let go
Of their lifeline
To fall upon
Your crown
& Destroy your kingdom-
The palm tree as it dances
In the breeze after it hits
Its target like a
Stealth Bomber-
Yet, sly-
It dances on-
Awaiting its next

    A swaying dance of death no doubt, with so many fruit, they don't muck about. Good write with a great sense of humour and tropical who done it. (Report) Reply
