Sonnet #61

Headlines from a better world than this:
There's a conspiracy in place to make sure kids
All feel like heroes of a hidden place
That can, only once a year, be visited
The king of cats has called a moratorium
on the slaughtering of sparrows in the spring
Five neat tricks to resurrect before crematoriums
You'll never believe the songs that we will sing
By the end of this newspaper, let's begin with page one
The rabbits have formed a council to get the vote
They will soon outnumber us, democratically, run
for office on an anti-Hawk measure, or be smote
The debts have all been washed away in a generous flood
The government has been renewed, no shed blood
