Pecking Order

Three black birds
Feeding on my lawn
Display their different characters.

Rook is king
With murderous bill,
Strutting, marking out his manor.

Jackdaw hops about –
The cheeky chimney chatterer.

Never yet
By the threat of advancing rook.

He quickly
Steals the stale bread crust,
Braving the rook’s road-breaking beak.

Blackbird waits his turn,
Golden monocled eye, watching,

With patience,
Diligence, he waits,
Then swoops to gather up the crumbs.
