Who Sliced that Cloud?

Our April 2, 2013 PAD prompt was to write a bright poem or a dark poem or even both. When I saw a cloud in the sky with a dark, flat bottom, I decided to combine bright and dark in the same poem.

Who Sliced that Cloud?

The Jolly Green Giant
has an evil cousin who
hates white feathery clouds.

Why else did I notice
a cloud sliced flat enough
to reveal its dark underbelly?

The cutlass-wielding monster
Is long gone.
