KNEW LITTLE ABOUT BIRDS


KNEW LITTLE ABOUT BIRDS

This afternoon coming to work

My eyes met the prank (?) of a jerk…

NINE LOAVES OF BREAD

Over the fence were spread,

Someone thought our geese needed “perks”.

One problem with bread and geese,

Too much doesn’t interest them in the least…

With lots of good grass

Mere pastry is crass,

Too foul to consider a feast.

But if seagulls were around,

They would have covered the ground…

Ripping every loaf apart

By no special art,

Rapidly that bread would have been downed!

But the geese—they’d rather pretend

(Although one loaf was poked in one end)

That the loaves weren’t there,

But what did THEY care…

The bread would be mush in the end.

One thing “benefactors” should note:

For bread, geese are unlike the goat,

Serving size is key…

Smaller bites their cup of tea,

Maybe one slice of bread you could tote!

  1. good one, when I was working and stopped at McDonald’s for a quick hamburg I always bought 2 bags of fries, one for me and one for the seagulls!

  2. Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:

    THIS POEM IS FOR THE BIRDS !!!

  3. Well, someone may feel bad for the geese if the snow is covering their food. Sorry about so many loaves of bread, though!
