A poem for a scarecrowess

 inktuition scarecrowessSomething about your mascara eyes

And your coral painted lips

that look confused, not scary really,

so are you sticking to the script?

But beyond the puffed up, stuffed old shirt

And the pulled-in little waist,

I wonder:

Are your twiggy fingers ready to fight

Or have you put on your bravest face?
