Who Stole the Strawberries




Trust is such a deliciously sweet thing
				     Who				
			     stole
		       the
strawberries?
Make the yellow-bellied canary sing

Confidence lost in an abandoned mind
Smoky sulfur 
and silica methane ...
uptake of noxious fumes to the brain

Pinning blame on the innocent
	is such a wickedly gossip thing
				     Who				
			     stole
		       the
strawberries?
Make the paid parrots walk the plank

Over the edge,
submersive feeling of a shark bite
Band of brotherly fear: pie-hole footsteps Caine a-coming,
like the razor slice of a sharp knife

A taste for deceit is an acquired appetite;
	such a distended, gluttonous thing
				     Who				
			     stole
		       the
strawberries?
Loyalty fled, as the cannons started firing

Resentment turned inward,
be a busted gut full of bellyaching —
Sunken boatload of wretched, scurvy self-loathing
Someone coveted the strawberries ... 
perhaps it was a fickle foe pretend friend

Check the fingers for the evidence
		that is scarlet proof crimson staining
Drink an ask flagon of cherry whine
				     Who				
			     stole
		       the
strawberries?
Will be mutineer revealed in due time
