Ravens at the Take-out

Four old fellows hopping, squawking
(now I shouldn't call them old
less than twenty, in the wild.
At my age ... I've no room for talking.)

Four jet fellows found a treasure
in a just-discarded wrapper,
out next to a Taco Bell
maybe just a taco shell
but it's surely made them happy.

Rise at dawn and leave your roost
come to work, wild things seduced
by easy pickings, nice fresh food.
In winter - oh it smells so good!

Four old fellows, glossy winged
almost clumsy, on the ground
almost comic, squabbling,
wobbling around
until a sudden leap into the sky
and my
those birds can fly!
