July is Poetry Month!

As so decreed by my cousin Amanda (of the excellent blog, Plausible Prosetry).

Her poem for today (a limerick) is here: https://amandasobierajski.wordpress.com/2015/06/30/u-r-my-typus/

And my poem for today is this one, below. (Amanda’s writing one every day, but I’m writing only as many as I can manage this month.)

Whilst trying to sleep and failing.

Magpie sitting on the balcony rail
Squawking to raise the dead.
Wonder if he’d change his tune
If I let the cat out?
