The Bullet And The Bluebird.

This is one of ideas for 'Poetry Rivals 2012'

The Bullet and The Bluebird


Blue feathers, blue eyes,

Life in the trees, no compromise.

Endless flight,

Nothing bad in sight.

The bullet and the blue bird.

Camouflage, emotions a mirage,

Silver shotgun,

Steel bullet,

Bang! Bang!

The barrel sang.

The bullet and the blue bird.

Why, oh why?

Is bluebird shot from the sky?

The sun is rising the sky is red,

To match what the bluebird bled.

The bullet broke the bluebird.

The End
