Oh Pigeon Man of Lincoln Square,
With fire hydrant as your chair,
You fed the pigeons with such care.
You even let them sit in your hair!
In 2007 a Chevrolet Geo van
Struck Mr. Joseph Zeman.
Chicago pigeons lost their biggest fan.
The old plaza they now scan.
The pigeons get together and contend
“What will we do? Is this the end?
Upon Good ol‚Äô Joe we did depend
He was our very best friend.”
Here’s a photo of Joseph Zeman on flickr:
