im supposed to bing in a song or a poem that has to do with to kill a mockingbird and someone told me this song by Billie Holiday can connect with it but i need help figuring it out:
Southern trees bear strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.
Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.
Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.
This should explain it

One of those noisy mimics keeps proclaiming its territory outside your bedroom window at 6:00 am, you won't think it so much of a sin to pump up the old pellet rifle for some peace and quiet.
Who, me? Nah, I would never do that, no. Just musing, that's all.
I advise u to look sparksnotes it is very helpfull in analysis of almost all literary works good luckk
