NaPoWriMo 2016 Day 15

birds of a feather flock together

or so I have heard it said

but what of the ones who break the tether

who absolutely will not be led

the ones who hear their own different drum

and whistle a different tune

the one who goes when logic says come

and takes midnight strolls at noon

these questions flit through my brain

when I try to follow the rules

then scamper right off again

I guess I am one of those fools

a dreamer

a schemer

a walker on clouds

a wearer of shrouds

a rebel

a voice you cannot quell

a break the rhyme scheme

don’t follow the meter

forget to use punctuation

l listen to instruction

but have little gumption

to follow through

do you
