Derivative Dove

Where there be hawks
There be fighting little twits
Ready to make a nest
A homeland
And dive and dive and dive

Triple repetition
Says here: language arts
Nature's science gave us pause
While liquid air makes hearts

Won't the soul give out a dime
When the dying's done
Can't a failure prop the door
Thusly walk-out won

Sometimes escape 
Is to fight
And a conflict rages out
As the victor's life is spoiled
By the deadly bout

Where did we come from
Is that where we'll go
Questions unmarked
By refreshing snow

Contra to diction
Murmurs give light
Its flavors and savor
A well-lit dark night
