Oh Look! There’s a bird on the nuts
‘It’s only a sparrow’ I hear you cry
Yeah but the little fellow’s got guts
Normally they just fly on by

We’re doing our bit in the garden
With several varieties of food in the feeders
I’m sure our frustration you’ll pardon
When our efforts are ignored by the bleeders

We’re really concerned by the lack
Of small birds of any variety
Every time we look, out the back
The only thing we ever see is ‘The Pigeon’
