Helter Skelter

Helter Skelter

There is a crow atop the electric wire
Reincarnated from the ashes of a tempestuous friar
Cawing furiously as sparrows scurry for cover
His hungry beak salivating just as the maddened lover

Evergreen branches provide the necessary shelter
Pine needles thwarting the tragedy of helter skelter
A tiny sentinel guards the chirping flock
Impatiently the black-feathered rogue monitors Nature’s clock

Almighty God created the prodigious and the weak
Aristotle explained the doings of an imperishable God in early Greek
Be as the sparrows, and be not afraid
Take flight midst the evil and fight the crusade

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
