clueless dummy (troiku)

Inspired by the Lovely Lolly’s scarecrow haiku. Visiting her blog is such a delight at Foralovelything

new scarecrow …
already a field mouse pokes
around its fly

(troiku)

heckling crows
irritating to mortals
scarecrow’s blank stare

heckling crows
mock the hopeless dummy
stuffed with straw

irritating to mortals
the enigmatic calls warn,
little critters sneer

scarecrow’s blank stare
his gruesome fate awaits-but
ignorance is bliss

tills the soil,
calculating his harvest,
sows the fields

works night and day,
you’d surely be envious
noble farmer

nuisance prevails
gorging leaves messy field,
pot belly crows
