Emily Dickinson - A prompt -- executive Bird is the Jay --

A prompt -- executive Bird is the Jay --
Bold as a Bailiff's Hymn --
Brittle and Brief in quality --
Warrant in every line --

Sitting a Bough like a Brigadier
Confident and straight --
Much is the mien of him in March
As a Magistrate --

My opinion.

There was a reason her poems did not recieve any recognition during her lifetime, this poem shows why. It sucks. A lot. This is possibly the biggest offence against Engilsh ever crafted.
