Cooper came to visit a while last week,
Uninvited, unannounced – insolent!
I guess he’s here to stay, the cheeky sneak.
I asked him to leave but he’s still hell-bent
on staying, proclaiming he’s innocent!
Well, feathered friend, I’m keeping you at bay.
My feeder’s not hawk’s bait for easy prey.
Fly toward wilder feeding grounds to feast.
Use your hunter’s skill and fly far away.
Bugger off my song birds’ feeder, at least!
