I Know Why The Eagles Nest So High Improvisation 09 24 2010 - Poem by Lee B. Mack

Original 04 18 2010 Improvisation 09 24 2010

The eagles’ high rock cleft shelter and
Rampart hospice set plains to beg
Endurance to reach paranormal abundance
Need flustered and resentment brooding flail
Impulse aperture berths in her nest -observant
Markets sugar coat hunger and things
Faith gained through suffering would bring
If she unfilled would leave with winter
I know why the eagles nest so high
From advantage -higher-ups build nests
Above plains and seas but by the dark of
Their own shadows cast down
Upon the widow’s pain -fatherless they too
Become the last who are left to the
Imago and lonely idols
I know why the eagles nest so high
Temptation brings to the world whole all worldly
Pleasures –she alone would come with spring
But fear the dark in shadows cast upon
Widows and upon the fatherless for they too
Shall perish together under the slain -no life is
There living worth living out the string
No less there to remain buried nested and dry
The last refused live to die
Go where we can fast these many days of power
I know why the eagles nest so high.
