Doves
2005-08-24/7:42 p.m.

At dawn, doves are so clean and white.
Have you ever wondered what they do at night?
Their eyes turn large and fiery red
If you look right at them, they’ll strike you dead.

They gather in groups along the sea
And bicker and fight and never agree
As to what to do with the children they’ve taken
From the parents who now will never awaken.

All they know is that they want to hear
The kinds of sounds that result from fear
Though things can get pretty messy at night
By dawn they make sure they are clean and white.
