For day 10 of National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) “Many of us have read and even written love poems. But have you written an un-love poem?” Here is mine.
FOOD CHAIN BLUES
Lots of birds at our feeder
I enjoy watching them all,
except for a very noisy bird-
I wish crows didn’t come to call.
I know they need to feed their young
but not with birds I’m feeding.
I rescued a Pine Siskin from a crow,
thank goodness it wasn’t bleeding.
When I scare the crows away,
It scares all other birds too,
but the little ones soon come back
we’re part of the rounds they do.
I’m also a cat-loving person
except for a neighbor’s big grey
who stalks birds as they’re eating,
so I have to shoo him away.
I know there is a food chain
as I, myself, eat meat,
but I’m still protective of little birds
who choose to live on my street.
