The Happy Henchman from: ‘Hoot Owl Hollows’
The Happy Henchman from:
‘Hoot Owl Hollows’
The Happy Henchman
From “Hoot Owl Hollows”
“Come and be killed,” howls the ISIS deviants.
Cutting people into fisher-bird slabs—
Their death is as clear as a buoy’s bell:
Their souls in a viperish shell!
“Dilly, dilly,” says the devil, and calls the lot
His green chickens of the bay, that cluck
In the bushes, when he says “Dilly, dilly.”
And as his Henchmen cry, they obey:
“Come let us die!” and the blithe birds in the
Elm, hail their retreat to the fiend, with
Spur-of-the-moment cracking of feathers,
And sparrow hail of bird drops, and astray
Bird whistles. Now the Henchman hides in the
Weeded edge, between hell, heaven and earth:
Leading his IS deviants, like green cocks or hens
To “Hoot Owl Hollows,” in Tartarus, otherwise
Known as: The Great Chicken Coop.
