Pigeons–maybe they aren’t all that bad

After many, many, many, many, many posts on anti-pigeons, maybe they aren’t all that bad. They are tough survivers and add a non-human element to urban areas. They do have nice different colors. And they do walk in a funky way with their heads bobbin. So here’s a poem:

Oh pigeons with your funny stride

A positive view you were denied.

Stirring and skipping along curbside,

Do you truly have a good heart inside?

Children cheerfully feed you.

Quietly echoing sounds coo coo

Overhead you joyfully flew

But please don’t release stinky poo poo

“Stirring and skipping along curbside, Do you truly have a good heart inside?” Wow. This is heavy stuff. The verdict may be out on pigeons, but it’s in on Matt Maldre: A POETIC GENIUS. Thanks for the inspiration. -D

Pigeons think train conducters stink because trains are continuously running into them, knocking them off the tracks down to the street below … Be mindful, Mr. Pigeon! Watch out for that truck! *g!a!s!p!*
