Treasure Island

Walter C. Edwards


A Robins Call


As the Robins cherps in the early morning light,
the female comes into nets to relieved her mate,
the male goes of to find some food to eat,
as then the the female begins to tweet,
"the egg is cold you lazy baster,
I should peck your dairy after,
I will have to sit here way to long,
as your lazy ass is gone,
she chirps I need to eat,
and repeats I need to eat, "
The male comes back into the nest,
a chance for him to rest,
to keep all the eggs warm,
he sounds out a alarm,
"I see Cat, I see Cat,
may it get go away,
unit another day,
it leaves, then nest is safe,
as he calls to his mate,
you slut, you slut these eggs are not mine,
all of this is a waste of my time,
come back to keep these eggs warm,
you slut, you bitch, I will sound the alarm."
this is the fruit of life,
bare it but think twice,

    this poem, for me, sort of, is in dire need of some proofreading and correction by the author. however, the author may be typing 100 words per minute and wait until receiving the first comment (like mine) to consider proofreading. ? actually, despite the 'errors', i found the poem quite entertaining and clever. i like rhymes most of the time and this poem had some good ones....well not many...i just checked. but that's okay with me also. the story was a nice one for me (and my sense of humor and love of birds) . i especially liked the following:
    you slut, you slut these eggs are not mine,
    all of this is a waste of my time,

    maybe the eggs weren't 'hers' either. perhaps a cowbird or cuckoo got to the nest and did its thing.
    thanks for sharing. bri :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
