Hawks

HAWKS

see the hawks fly in the air?
feathers dark, they scan for prey
but lo a creature with a gun
has designs to steal the day

this creature traveled from the east
pale-faced, he tricked and scammed
any who opposed his trek
to the northwest promised land

see the hawks rise above
almost uppity, some may say
how those beaks unloose those shrieks
all the while, he slowly aims

see the shot the Patriot took?
did the man take home the prize?
feathers flutter to the ground
falling through our warming skies

—William Skink

    The White Rose Society in 21st century America?!

    The White Rose was a close-knit group of friends in Nazi Germany. They anonymously published a series of pamhplets, distributing them to scholars, medics, and pub owners. They began to do public grafitti critical of Hitler. Several were caught distributing fliers and they were all rounded up and executed.

  2. Here is a man asking the question
    Is this really the end of the world
    Seahawk *you must have known for a long time
    The shape of things to come
    Now you fly through the sky
    Never asking why, and you fly
    All around till somebody shouts you down-Adams
