Guilty Till Proven Innocent

Post  mikeschultz on Tue Jan 17 2012, 15:08

A loon calls across the water,
And the high lonesome sound echoes
From the trees that surround the lake.
I dip my paddle and the nose
Of my kayak glides forward, as a snake
Pauses to ask, ‘What’s the matter?’

We go our ways the snake and I,
As I paddle my craft to camp.
The loons call to one another.
I stir the rice and light a lamp.
The mosquitoes were a bother.
I sprayed and got some in my eye.

Eye rinsed and the fish and rice gone,
Eaten by just one hungry man.
Exercise promotes appetite
Though seldom as to a gourmand
Who views gluttony as art, quite
Apart from just one man alone.

My heart cries to hear the Loons laugh
With sadness in the wilderness
And on the breeze that bears the scent
Of dead men buried in a mass
Grave. Anything but heaven-sent.
Quiet, reserved, I’ve had enough.
