Isle of Flightless Birds

Isle of Flightless BirdsToday called for a change of pace, maybe a little comic relief to start the weekend. Yes, no, hopefully so? ……….Anyway, this one’s inspired by the title of the Twenty One Pilots song “Isle of Flightless Birds.” Read it , listen to it, leave your comments in the dungeon below, and have a fantastic Saturday folks.

Check out the archives of all my other Twenty One Pilots inspired poetry HERE and check back every Saturday for a new one (that is, until I run out of their songs).

RecklessToday’s poem is inspired by “Hot Tonight” by Tokyo Police Club (S/O to my friend Charlie for the recommendation). This marks the third edition in my new Sunday series of poetry inspired by a new song/band every week. Check out last week’s post inspired by Never Shout Never HERE and give a listen to Tokyo Police Club below 🙂

If you have a song suggestion for future poetic inspiration, please EMAIL ME at!

It’s Sunday folks, which means it’s time for me to announce my NEW SUNDAY SERIES on She’s in Prison! The past 8 months have been dedicated to the Josh Dun Poetry Corner, a series inspired by the drummer from the band Twenty One Pilots. But with the new year I retired Josh’s Corner in a bittersweet culminating post, ready to leap into a new adventure.

So here it is…my new weekly tradition:

I will post a poem inspired by one (or two) song(s) on my current playlist. Every week will be a new band, so hopefully ya’ll can discover some great music and I can celebrate my favorites. Win!

Ready? Let’s go!


Inspired by:

“No Idea” and “Me Without You”
