open mouth repletion

by Treagal

open mouth repletion

hope brought a scarecrow from a neighbors field,
yet destroyer remained the buzzards' rest.
pecked corn taunts the combine, a farm life sealed.

dummies slump in broken dirt, crows concealed
content to grow fat whilst one squirms undressed.
hope brought a scarecrow from a neighbors field.

caws bounce through unmoved tractors, feigning yield
whilst rust gathers waiting to be possessed;
pecked corn taunts the combine, a farm life sealed.

to sit upon the porch, to waste away, congealed
in chair, creates a trench for the depressed.
hope brought a scarecrow from a neighbors field.

it cracks apart even the strongest shields,
to start an engine, rev-up in protest;
pecked corn taunts the combine, a farm life sealed.

this pellet blast, like husks of corn peeled
back to reveal a harvest most unblessed.
hope brought a scarecrow from a neighbors field;
pecked corn taunts the combine, a farm life sealed.

So tight I can't fit into it! You would be thrown out of thesweaer factory, that tight. I have to love it although I have no interest in corn, farming, or combines. What a tight villannelle about economic failure; the ominous feeling of impending doom.Your perfectionism pays off dearly...

    yes, thank you once again Butterfly. this is probably the only form I enjoy, as far as meter and rhyme are concerned.
