Early Bird

The crows have

                         the guns

the pigeons have

                         the numbers

the parrots have

                         public opinion

and most of

                         the birdseed

we scattered

    Thanks. And while I do not usually take requests, I've made an exception in this case. ;-) Check out "23:20" which I just posted. Enjoy!

    Too cute Darryl. It made me smile. I do love the birds and feed them all the time. I think there is something to be read between the lines here though. am I right? God Bless, JB

    an interesting write. here, in alabama, those cute squirrels hog all the seeds. Maybe the crows can shoot them. Thanks for sharing your work. Jancarl
