Wrote most of this at my DUI meeting thingy, I haven't written much since I graduated, something about the classroom-esque setting really makes my mind wander. Make of it what you will, crit it if you want, though i haven't critiqued or read anything in a while, so expect a comment, and I expect nothing more from others.

"Mocking Bird"

Birds grip the wire,
all in a line.
All the same color,
all the same height.

He fired his red rider,
shot one in the face,
and every time one fell,
another took it's place.

From the ground
we saw the sky on their backs,
no difference in their squawk,
if they cry or laugh.
