THE TESLA COIL IS SPOILED aka ALASKAN BREAKFAST aka YOU'RE DUPED

how do we kill
 1
a mocking bard?
 2
do we mock back
 3
in stolid rhymes?
 4
 
 
or, do we till
 5
the barbed land till
 6
we're winged aloft,
 7
away from the darn?

i'm not sure if this piece is any good,
but nothing beats waking up with
the realization that a person can
perpetually run on empty, like
a run-on life sentence.

the truth is, it all starts with
a dream that proceeds as an
antithesis, which then coils back --
infinity is such a re-coil,
a re-coo-ing back
to the source.

the trick question is
'how do we kill a mocking bard?',
because it's not even a question
at all.
