Blackbirds

Blackbird sits on a branch
Just outside my window.
He looks at me and swears
In a raucous voice
With no punctuation...
I know it's something supremely dirty --
Blackbirds have no manners..

And they always know
By the light behind my eyes
I'm mad for cats...

It's a good thing they can fly....
