Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 13th of July

Four, fat crows
Splash together
In treacherous overspill 
Mangrove coves
Screaming obscenities
In a tuneless caw
A murderous racket
Drumming claws
On the roof of a dirty car
Pulling at bins
Getting fatter
On human garbage
Is it play
Or are they serious
Jabbing, pecking
A dance macabre
In the rain
An Ibis strolls
Slowly by
Picking at whatever
Catches his eye
Decaying detritus
Peeking out of
Slippery Swampland
Silently growing
Reaching out
Onto broken tarmac
Salt-caked mud splatter
Eating pastel paintwork
As rusted hulks
Sink slowly into
History
Landlocked
Far from high tides
And rockpools
Until the wind blows
