Acorns Away!

By Sarah Levesque (Rated G)

Oak trees like bombers
Soaring toward the sky
Laden with burdens
To loose upon the unsuspecting below.

Suddenly, a release!
And all the missiles fall.
Lighter now, the bearer kisses the clouds
Unconcerned with the fate of the unsuspecting below.

The unsuspecting cringe
Under the deadly hail;
Flinging up hands to ward them
Ducking down below.

Knowing natives laugh
At visitor’s consternation and alarm
As they look up, wide eyed,
And slip on those below.

This is a New England autumn:
Acorns overhead,
Acorns underfoot,
Acorns away!
