You could have a big dipper   

Dovet by Rickey Rivers Jr.


Dove

You do not know

How much I wish

Your wings were mine

If I had them

I would fly

So far

So high

You would say:

"Poet

You do not know

How much I wish

Your wings were mine

If I had them

I would fly

So far

So high

Away

From you

You choose

You use

And abuse

Anything

Given

To you

Instead

Of asking

You take

You take

And take some more

From me

From Earth

From all

Who enjoy

A peaceful life

Everything

You are is lies

Everything

You touch has died."
