In Memory of Maya Angelou

In memory of Twitter and Maya Angelou.

The Midnight Writer

I wrote a post in 2010 titled My Regards to Maya Angelou. In memory of a great poet I thought I would share it today.

I Know Why the Twitter Bird Tweets

The free bird leaps
on Google’s back
and scrolls down page
till the browser ends
and dips his wings
in Facebook rays
and dares to claim the internet.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow page
can seldom see through
his lists of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his claws to tweet.

The Twitter bird tweets
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and his tweets are read
on a distant hill
for the Twitter bird
tweets of freedom

The free bird may watch tivo’d Glee
And order up some good Chinese
and laugh as Sue Sylvester drones
On and on of kids…
