42 Days with Huck Finn XXXIX:XLII

Never Quit Being Made

J.I.M. is a prisoner of style made,
by the imagination of play things.
The plantation they wisely evade.

"Beware. Trouble is brewing.  Keep a sharp lookout."

Fears take the family's heart,
spooked again, and spooked again.
Ouch! Whoopjambereehoo! of flintheart, 
the family stands firm in their pain;
till all the blue dragons are slain.

Form Based on John Dunne's "A Litanie: the Son" 
Picture is of the Brave Warrior of Canyon de Chile Manuelito: cited in Willa Cather's Book
Death of the Archbishop.

Coming UP: Moby-Dick an Epic Poem 
One Poem per Chapter just like Huckleberry Finn.
