Spies Among Us

Spies Among Us

I heard you before I saw you

I swivelled and craned my neck

When I finally located you

You were perched obviously

Prominently for all of your beacon-like friends to hear

High on a hillside

You shared your secret song

Alerting others to my presence

You made me feel foreign in my own land

The invader in your moment of kingship

So you dispatched yourself

Covering the distance that had taken me half and hour

In a matter of minutes

You left me in wonder

Delightfully disturbed by the significance of you
