didja?

didja didja do?
hollow tree they found ol' cain
wrapped a-baling wired
lockjaw wired shut
smiling at the fast one
he pulled
but forgot to
send the punchline
before the nightwatch rang
and stole him to the
sky sluagh screaming

the jest, a fine one
but the stolen milk
was too scant of note
so the townsfolk all
could only ask
god-marked cain
what a
didja didja do?
