[ NaPo 2017 ] Children Of The Corn Cob

 

It's macabre, I know  
but children of the corn cob  
really do grow in the great state of Nebraska  
 
And when you are wandering in the maize  
they pop out in scary ways  
too terrible to mention  
I doubt you would tell me if I asked ya  
 
Though I've heard from a crowing blackbird  
that its similar to the Baby Jesus  
emerging from that cave he lived in  
doing the Ally McBeal baby dance for us  
and seeing his shadow, predicting  
poetry for Thirty More Days!
