To Kill a Mockingbird
I know it’s supposed to be a sin to kill a mockingbird. Because all they do is sing their hearts out for us, right?
But what about when they imitate your alarm clock…every morning. Sitting in the azalea bushes right outside your bedroom window. About 15 to 30 minutes BEFORE your alarm goes off.
There is a mockingbird that has fallen in love with my alarm clock. So much so, that he/she comes to visit it. Every. damn. morning. To sing the alarm clock awake through the window and join in the trilling. It chirps out the same pattern as the alarm clock. And there’s no effin snooze on the mockingbird, although I would take great, great satisfaction in smacking it on its little birdy head. Repeatedly.
It might be a sin, but it’s still going to be dead.
