The Mockingbirds - Poem by Juan Olivarez

lazy cat meandering by
get's dived bombed out of the sky
one after another the bombers fly
defying death, triumph or die

time takes it's course and the cat retreats
the bombers satisfied with their deeds,
scatter to the mighty oak,
to preen the feathers on their coats.

and then a heavenly song so sweet
comes from out their tiny beaks,
highs, and lows, and, sharps, and flats,
taunting all the alley cats.

music from heaven they entone,
the most beautiful music barring none,
enchanting music with no words
the hypnotic songs of the mockingbirds.
