  • For the birds

    What to call this group of birds

    Defining the absurd


    Birds of a feather, flock together

    Ready for migration

    Praying for good weather

    Who knows the destination


    Elected, ease the fears

    They call for all to hear

    Holdovers from previous years

    Come, I’ll lead the way


    And the murder stand in rows

    Undeviating crows

    With scales upon their toe’s

    Scratch the dirt


    While the parliament of owls

    Left to question how

    The peacock’s ostentation

    All stand for observation


    In the sky the vultures kettle

    The gaggled geese all mettle

    And roosting turkeys hope

    An egg will stop the vote
