Story a day: 2.16.16

Prompt: I am a little short on time, so today's form is a simple acrostic. The first letter of each line spells a word when read vertically.


Yew trees line the way
Or perhaps instead I'll stay
Under thumb, under eye
Remain here and comply

Maybe there's another way
Outside where ravens fly
Maybe there's a way to say I will not, can not stay
