A Right Pair

When 2 swans trumpeted to fly out north

With heralding whoops and bright eyed splashes

The others drew out and formed a runway

To lead them straight to green, open tundra

But zeal can often be the trap of fools

As in their sweet romance they flew madly

And smacked themselves across a blind pylon

To shatter wing, and split their wish-bone dream.

As the sting of cliché dawned upon them

One half, broke off and promised to return.

But barely had the moon waned out for dawn

When he came waddling back, his own wing limp

Now wondering if there's much more they can do

Than glide around in darkness as a 2
