why do you mock me

why do you mock me

A Poem by keith moncus

you never brought them

why do you mock me

why do you moke me
you bring flowers now that i'm dead
you never brought them when i was alive
why do you mock me
perhaps it's my unkept yard
i like it
the birds like it
the butterflies like it
what you think is tall grass
is the flowers plant
i mow around them
leaving islands of smattered color
a sensory overload if you will
i have better things to do 
now i have nothing to do
only be gone
why do you mock me so

we are so often mocked because of appearances...what we look like, how we keep our surroundings...
but who is behind it all? isn't that what is important.
Oh, when I am gone you will notice me then....and the birds and butterflies will have tears in their eyes.
