Heartland 2
[by S. David] [art by Mike Cockrill]

The incantation
Worked well
It bound bonded
Her to a deep-rooted
Though barren tree
Turned her into
A conduit of
Malignant rumor
And gossip that
Issued forth from
Her mouth as pitch
Black carrion birds
To carry the odious
Messages across
The country’s
Heartland causing
Destruction riot and
Despair in their wake
