The fashion sense of scarecrows falls somewhat below
what one might wish for or expect, but let me be direct--
We are here by dint of some master's splintered stake,
charged with undertaking to repel, not attract
Those 24 that you've not caught, killed, tricked or baked.
The moral sense of scarecrows is something not often considered
as something pertinent to hired foreman or spurned bird,
But ruminate on this, as we have, long nights among the stalks--
envy of avian creatures gives rise to unwonted nocturnal talks
About how to catch and kill the critic, and leave him rotting intestate.
10 lines it took me for-freaking-ever to come up with, for Kerry's "Eye of The Beholder" mini-challenge at Real Toads!
