Cheeky Birds

“Birds are the eyes of Heaven.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun


We have naughty Drongas
who visit every day.
They eat tiny bits of cheese
and chase small birds away.

One stands watch, and waits for me,
others swoop and grab.
These cheeky little beggars
with them life’s never drab.

I’ve watched them from a distance
they steal other bird’s food.
I wonder if they are lazy
or just absolutely rude.

My cat doesn’t like them
they make loud garish sounds,
and imitate her meowing,
their boldness knows no bounds!
