Poem # 13

LOST IN A CORN MAZE

~

Corn husks rustle, left and right…

Forsaken on this cold, dark night…

Alone…

All alone…

I realize they hypnotize…

Throwing magic into my eyes…

Alone…

All alone…

Is synchronicity a possibility?

Is this accidental, or just incidental?

Alone…

All alone…

I must take action, cause a distraction;

I need interaction; I feel I’m in traction…

Alone…

All alone…

I must use my senses, to break down defenses,

and break free from this agony…

Alone…

All alone…

This test will only make me stronger,

And from this mess, I’ll be lost here no longer…

Alone…

All alone…

Oh, I’m just a scarecrow, who’s biding my time…

Trying to find reason, out of the rhyme…

Alone…

All alone…

So lost in a corn maze,

So lost in my mind…

So lost in a corn maze,

So lost to my kind…

Alone…

All alone…

Scarecrow guards

cornfield mild

Voracious blackbirds

Observant and wild

Relishing savories

Your crop defiled

SCARECROW

The scariest thing I’ll ever see,

Is a scarecrow staring back at me…

What’s going on in that head of straw,

Grinning with his sewn on maw?

Seeing with unblinking eyes…

Take it from me – a word to the wise.

You can’t trust the rustle of wind in his hair…

In a cornfield maze, you must beware.

Go out there on a sunny day,

Believe me you will lose your way.

It’s a trick the scarecrow loves to play…

A ruse to keep you there all day.

Now, if you dare the cornfield row,

And if you feel you really must go…

I’ve warned you well, and now you know…

Never turn your back on a spooky scarecrow.
