Common Cuckoo
















Common Cuckoo (First Draft)
By Kevin Wasden © 2020

I am a common cuckoo,
      destructive and deceitful,
         blameless by nature.

My father and his family,
      they think me theirs,
          in spite of my stature,
               in spite of my paleness,
                    despite the prudence in my eyes.

Survival restrains my guilt, but,
     it is only a matter of time, before
          it escapes.
