Pica Pica

May 20th

Avian Hyena, piebald pirate,

Monochrome trickster, dressed in lustrous lies.

What evil did you, to deserve such hate?

Even child killers are not so despised.

In finest tuxedo you proudly strut,

Skipping not hopping, stealing not shopping.

Flamboyant tail trails, yours not Covid cut,

Dashing dandy, bursting with swaggering

A quiet assassin, you cannot make,

Your murderous mischiefs, way too loud.

That cackle rattles like a rusty grate,

Your secretive entrance it disavows.

Despite your sins you are a dapper site,

A well-dressed gentleman, in black and white.

Please do leave me your thoughts and comments, in praise or constructive criticism, I appreciate them all and will reply.

  1. Can’t help admiring them no matter how mean spirited.
    Nice work again, Graham. I do have a preference for these less cryptic examples.
