The Poet and the Pigeon



Everyday,
until a passerby
Shooed them away
Damn guy;
what's he thinking?

They were just
pecking at seed,
as commonly
done, around
this time

Idiot!
Now I have,
No birds, to enjoy.
Not employed,
They refuse.

Oh well,
It happened.
Lucky, am I not?
Having birds,
any time.
