City Sounds

Gritty city sounds Nature’s sweet music abounds So come on guys- lend an ear Plump pigeons cooing Fire escape a-wooing The notes of amour ring clear What’s that? A “Squeak! Squeak!” Poor mouse has begun to speak Stuck to one of my glue traps Surly gulls squawking Their raucous way of talking While dining on pizza scraps Screeching love defines Some caterwauling felines With clamorous, catty glee Such melodies soar Though some of you may abhor My tenement symphony For The Sounds of Nature contest
