Random Poem:

Change agent

On batteries, the lonely bird abstract,
A cousin to the lesson of the stone;
A derelict with all his names intact,
The roots of which are not exactly known.
In Arkansas the father of the child,
Sad remnants of a sexual device;
O mother of the tainted one exiled!
Rise up like a halitosis christ.
This last cartoon the prison has to learn,
What harvest gloom that seems a soft embrace;
The next time music offers flags to burn,
Special people tear apart the place.
           The energy the nestling needs subsides;
           Without the sound the prisoner provides.
