A wise mockingbird tries to warn others of his wicked intentions to ruin their stability
The Mockingbird

They battle for his attention
with dazzling words of humour
And husbands feel the tension
with every passing rumour
They hang onto his every word
Of chivalry and lies
And cannot hear the mockingbird
That warns with words so wise

It mimics, and it bellows
The pretence of his admiration
Alerting of his hollow
Unfounded dedication

The mockingbird retreats
As they perish in setting suns
Decaying homes, a husbands debris
From the bullets in his gun
