ZOOLOGY AT WORK
At my workplace, blue herons and fox,
Appear around the clock…
There’s no telling when
We’ll see one again,
Or the stray cat wearing silky white socks.
In sight of cooling towers,
Wild geese may graze for hours…
Upon the sweet grass
Their droppings they pass
Providing for both grass and flowers.
There’s a big old bass beyond,
In the murky waters of our pond…
Prob’ly more in back
Where the turtles in fact
Commute from that swamp to the pond.
Sparrows, geese and hawks
And pigeons live here in their flocks…
Hawks haven’t returned
‘Cause pigeons have learned,
Awareness protects breeding stocks.
Generally ducks will visit en route
From one ground to another, to recoup…
Spending time near the pond
Before they move on,
Considering this a spa serving great soup!
