trap this cuckoo bird
Cuculus canorus of the family Cuculidae
noted for its characteristic call 
and brood parasitism

how like the greater good
our call to arms and tourism
your cursory majesty and one
private hailstorm of cash

yellow-billed Riparian
blue-state seminarian 
scarcity will always be
our totalitarian dictator 

escape through your shirtsleeve
the stretch of a bicep, the wrinkle
clears another superhighway
i will find you at Caernarfon Bay

the kudzu conceals all that is left
then the fire consumes the vines
