bird war [Mar. 1st, 2015|11:24 am]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[mood |poetic]
[music |get the blessing - ocdc]

nice to hear a bird sing in the daytime here
a blackbird braving the high street
with it's coffee outlets
and fashion emporiums

worlds away from war

i drive the dumpertruck that clears away the rubble
and puts it on the lorry
that takes it away

bird singing through the traffic
hiss of the wheels on the road
through rain
past my window

owl replies to blackbird in the nightime
tertwit terwoo

blackbird sings what she sings
choatic, jumpy...

the magpies are getting closer....
with their swalking and scwabbling
and taking of the shiny things
like magpies are supposed to

cut to a crow
dropping a nut
onto a busy highway
lateral thinking....
until it gets squished by a truck...

too much lateral thinking
not enough RUNAWAY!

i think how long it is since i climbed a tree
nearly, probably, too long
14 years
how much is a life worth?
less than you'd think but more than you'd realise

the message of the birds?
...keep singing...
