Snake hunting bird in silent trance
Iconic outline on the branch
As daybreak dies, with laughter, quiet
You quell your deadly appetite
Your searching eye from tilted head
Has spied a rocky sun-warmed bed
A silent slither from the grass
A wary reptile dares to pass
And you bark brown, have flown away
For gumtops high to eat your prey
You laugh - as if you laugh at fate
It's true - considering what you ate.
