Turkey Buzzards

Cattle that died from stark starvation
Were a banquet dried by dehydration
So turkey buzzards gathered to eat
This jerky prepared by the desert heat
And they gorged themselves 'til they couldn't fly
As vultures waited for them to die

    so here is an animal rhyme I somehow missed back from August. Turkey buzzards AND vultures. Oh MY. I liked how the meat turned to jerkey in the hot sun!!

    I had written a poem title "Vultures" and a friend ask if I would give her a copy of my Buzzard poem. So, I thought to myself. I must write a poem about buzzards and this is what I came up with. I love to write about animals. "Vultures" is one of my favorites.
